Thresholds program seeks volunteers 

June 27, 2022

The Thresholds program at Sussex Correctional Institution in Georgetown is seeking volunteers to teach decision-making skills to incarcerated people in a classroom setting.

Using the Thresholds student workbook to provide one-on-one instruction, volunteers teach an essential thought process needed to make sound decisions and set realistic goals.

Four Thresholds program cycles are scheduled each year, and each cycle consists of 10 sessions held from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. on Wednesdays. Volunteers are not required to teach all four cycles. Volunteers are required to have a background check and orientation at Sussex Correctional Institution, as well as training with Thresholds volunteer teachers before they begin teaching.

To inquire about volunteering for Thresholds, call Sandy at 302-236-9110 or email
