Thresholds to hold July training session
Thresholds is an all-volunteer organization which teaches decision-making skills to those incarcerated in Delaware’s prisons. By learning how to decide rather than simply react to life’s situations, inmates have a much better chance of becoming productive members of the community when released. Thresholds has been active in Delaware for more than 20 years and currently teaches the decision-making program at the Correctional Center in Smyrna, Gander Hill Prison in Wilmington, the Baylor Women’s Corrections Center in New Castle, the Sussex Correctional Center in georgetown and the Ferris School for Juveniles in Wilmington. Volunteers are needed who can give 2 hours a week for 10 weeks. Training will be held in late July at the Sussex Correctional Institution in Georgetown. To register, or for more information, call the Way Home Program in Sussex County at 856-9870 or Jim Plouffe in Wilmington at 302-994-3143 (leaving your name and number) no later than June 16.
