Volunteer Opportunity

The Federal Correctional Institution at Dublin (FCI Dublin, women’s correctional institution), California will hold their annual mock job fair for inmates on Wednesday, April 22. There is a first session in one facility from 8:30 a.m. to 10:45 a.m., and a second session from 12:30 p.m. to 1:30 p.m. in an adjacent facility. Volunteers can participate in either the first or the second session or in both sessions. The Education Department at FCI Dublin is seeking people with relevant personnel experience to participate in this annual Mock Job Fair. The goal is to provide inmates the opportunity to sharpen their interviewing and job-seeking skills before their eventual re-entry into society. Developing the tools necessary for an inmate to seek and secure employment upon their return to the community can be a critical factor influencing whether they will become a productive member of society or return to the criminal justice system. Representatives and volunteers who agree to perform this public service will be asked to conduct practice job interviews for inmate participants.

If you would like to volunteer to provide interview coaching please contact Remegio Tibunsay at FCI Dublin, at rtibunsay@bop.gov who can provide you with the necessary information to complete. It is a good idea to respond quickly if this is of interest in case volunteer opportunities fill up. If you would like to know about past experience volunteering at FCI Dublin please contact Ron Elsdon at ronelsdon@gmail.com.
