The Texas Department of Criminal Justice (TDCJ) offers volunteer training year round and across the state of Texas. To find a convenient location to attend a training, visit the TDCJ website and go to the volunteer page. There you will find volunteer information and a training calendar which is updated periodically.
In addition to attending a training with TDCJ, a prospective volunteer must also go through the approval process with The God of Hope Ministries. To begin that process, please review our sign-up process. You may also call the ministry office at 512-891-1649.
Annual Volunteer Training Breakfast
The God of Hope Ministries holds an annual training breakfast for all volunteers including those just interested or beginning the volunteer certification process. This covers information particulars for each individual faith based dorm as well as giving a current status update from the ministry president. It is usually held during the month of January.
