About Alpha For Prisons
How is Alpha delivered in prisons?
The Alpha course is delivered to inmates by trained Alpha volunteers with endorsements of their congregational leadership and who have participated in the course themselves. The office of the National Director for Alpha for Prisons & Re-Entry will coordinate the establishment of the course with the Warden/Chaplain and coordinate day-to-day operations with the Warden’s appointee.
Scheduling is flexible considering the prisons daily schedule of operations and the availability of volunteers. A 2-hour introduction program precedes the course, which is open to all inmates. The introduction consists of video presentations explaining the course, music and refreshments. From this introduction inmates will make application to attend. Generally no more than 40 inmates may participate at a time. Refreshments are served at each course.
During Week 7 of the course Alpha presents a “Holy Spirit Day”.
Please contact the National Director, Alpha for Prisons & Re-Entry for more information.
