Training Overview

 All new volunteers are required to attend a two-day training weekend consisting of an all day Saturday session and half day Sunday session with lunch provided as well as all training materials.  You will be educated in all major areas of the program including the Decision Making Process, Structure of Lessons and the Rationale of the program.  Role plays are an effective part in the success of the training weekend and will be used extensively. 

After satisfactory completion of the training, the Department of Corrections will require that a 3-hour security orientation be completed.  You must attend and be approved by the DOC or you will not be able to participate with the Thresholds program.  Completing the program does not obligate you to teach nor does it obligate Thresholds to accept you as a teacher.
