Volunteers are the heart of Red Lodge! We are supported by volunteers who have experience or would like to gain experience working with women and men who are in prison or transitioning out of prison. Our volunteers support us with a variety of skills and in a variety of interest areas, such as mentoring, advocacy & community engagement, Native cultural knowledge, marketing, fundraising, clerical & administration, audio & visual production, and more. If you are interested in becoming a volunteer, please contact us for more information or fill out our Volunteer Application.
