Annual Volunteer Event

A Tradition of Togetherness

This special event is a cherished time when our dedicated volunteers come together to work, eat, play, laugh, and support each other. It’s not just a productive weekend — it’s an opportunity to build lasting friendships and strengthen the bonds within our AI Family.

Since our first event in 2017 in California, the Annual Volunteer Weekend has become our favorite event of the year. Every summer, we gather for a weekend filled with activities that balance hard work and heartwarming fun. Volunteers from all over join forces to advance our mission, share meals, enjoy recreational activities, and celebrate the incredible impact we make together. All local and remote volunteers are welcome to join in this time together.

What to Expect

  • Work: Collaborate on important projects and initiatives that drive our mission forward. Process mail and applications that arrive in our PO Box.
  • Eat: Experience the joy of sharing food with friends.
  • Play: Engage in fun activities that foster team spirit and relaxation.
  • Share letters and art from prisoners: Share what incarcerated people write to us, sometimes funny, sometimes sad, and always heartfelt and touching.
  • Support: Offer and receive emotional support, encouragement, and appreciation from fellow volunteers.
