Faith-Based Services & Volunteer Programs

We appreciate the hard work and dedication of our volunteers who serve our inmates and returning citizens. Our volunteers are an invaluable resource to our department as they provide programming that focuses on changing criminal behavior and mindsets which are extremely beneficial to their rehabilitation process.

We recognize the importance of our volunteers having access to the volunteer handbook and application process that will assist you in serving with confidence in our correctional facilities. Listed below are the volunteer handbook and application packets for two (2) types of volunteers.

Volunteer Training

The in-person volunteer training is only needed for either NEW volunteers or volunteers who haven’t completed training since January 1, 2016 and it is HIGHLY recommended you attend your first-time training or required renewal training at the facility where you will primarily be serving. If that is a great inconvenience or there is not a training date/time available, then sign up for training at the Gara Building in Albuquerque. Please contact your facility chaplain at the email, address and/or phone number listed below for the training dates that they are provided at each of these facilities.

All other volunteers need to complete the above Renewal Application packet and send to the Chaplain of the facility you primarily volunteer at in order to continue to maintain an active volunteer status. Thank you again for your commitment to the men and women of the NMCD.

For more information or questions about volunteering, please send emails to NMCD-Volunteers@state.nm.us

Initial Application Packet

This packet is only for volunteers who haven’t completed a face-to-face volunteer training in the past year. If you have completed a face-to-face volunteer training in the past year, you must complete the Renewal Application Packet instead

Renewal Application Packet

This packet is only for volunteers who have completed a face-to-face volunteer training in the past year. If you haven’t completed a face-to-face volunteer training in the past year, you must complete the Initial Application Packet and the in-person training at a correctional facility prior to volunteering.
