Training & Time Commitment
Kairos volunteers are required to attend Department of Corrections badge training (about a six-hour session.)  Training is provided at team formation meetings before the Kairos weekend at the prison.  This ministry also involves about 40 hours of team meetings and a Thursday night through Sunday afternoon weekend twice a year.  Volunteers are asked to commit to a year of monthly follow-up meetings at the prison (about 96 hours total.)

Requirements
You cannot be on the visitors list for an inmate in the prison at which you wish to work.  Those with any criminal record require permission from the Warden of the prison prior to working there.
