The purpose of our corrections committee is to coordinate the work of individual AA members and groups that are interested in carrying the message of recovery to alcoholics that are incarcerated, or “Behind the Walls.” In achieving this purpose, we cooperate with the NIA Area 20 and District 12 Corrections Committees.
We support the regular Monday, 8 pm meetings at the jail as well as the Tuesday and Thursday 7:30 meetings for the Work Release program. Occasionally members may be asked to participate in workshops or panels regarding their experiences with corrections service work.
Volunteers are required to pass a background check, fingerprinting and pass an on-line course pertaining to the “Prison Rape Elimination Act.”
The approval process can take up to six months or more.We ask for a commitment of one night per month for at least six months.
If you (or your group) would like to contribute old grapevines and/or softcover big books or other AA material for use in the jail, it is very much appreciated.
