To become an approved volunteer within TDCJ you must submit a Volunteer Application. Currently you have the option to fill out an application form and bring it with you to the training session.
When filling out the form, make sure it is fully completed.
In particular under Program Area, checkmark “Chaplaincy” and for “Faith Identification” indicate your denomination.
Bring the completed form with you to the Training Session.
Available training sessions can be found at the following link:
(You are always best to call the unit and confirm your plan to attend)
Lastly for much more information, or to learn how you can perform your retraining on-line, you are welcome to checkout the TDCJ Website on Volunteer Services.
