Switch Letter-Writing Campaign Training
SWITCH, one of our local partners working to end sex-trafficking and exploitation in the Upstate, is inviting FG women to step into God's greater story by forming healthy relationships with incarcerated women via letter-writing. Living on mission with Jesus can be as simple as corresponding with women who have been impacted by sex trafficking and exploitation. Zakar is a letter-writing campaign that pairs women volunteers with incarcerated women in a local detention center who have opted into SWITCH's Intervention program. Women inside the detention center exchange letters with women outside the detention centers. In this way, volunteers let these women know that they are not forgotten.
In order to take part in this opportunity, volunteers will need to register to participate in a Zoom training with Switch staff on Thursday, August 20 at 11am. This training will be 2.5 hours long with additional video training later. This training has been condensed for those looking to participate in this opportunity. If you have ever wanted to become a volunteer with Switch, but haven't had a chance to participate in the longer volunteer training, this is a great opportunity to jump in!
