Incarceration perpetuates a vicious cycle of poverty, crime, and separated families. To end this, we sponsor the education of inmates’ children to give families hope for a more stable future. Many of our scholars enter as grade school students and remain until they finish college.
Through the perpetual support of our volunteers, PJPS conducts monthly formation programs for its scholars and their parents. In this light, we invite you to IMPACT lives of inmates and their families! JOIN our pool of volunteers!

Your dedication and commitment are greatly contributing in our mission as a ministry that shares the transforming love and mercy of God through the holistic rehabilitation of inmates, their families and the prison community as a whole.
Joining the ministry should not mean you’re having to turn your back on your commitments or concerns. Do not be discouraged if you can only be a once-a-month volunteer – that’s decidedly better than not wanting a single second of your life to the prisoners and their families.
As a volunteer, you will be tried for your patience, for your humility, your constancy, courage and most of all the purity of your intentions. Despite countless difficulties, you will keep on coming back to give love to prisoners, wearing your crown of thorns and hiding your wounds from the lashes received.
