Get the opportunity to volunteer your time in community-based projects throughout Trinidad and Tobago
through the VISION ON MISSION Volunteer Programme
Many persons being released from prison or those that are socially displaced, face many challenges in regaining a normal life within society.
Some may lack food, accommodation, clothing, skills training, endure unemployment, or face other stigmas as a result of their circumstance.
Vision On Mission has been working tirelessly to provide rehabilitation and reintegration services to this sector for over two decades.
A volunteer’s contribution of their time, energy, and unique skills in support of this most important work demonstrates their involved commitment to effecting positive changes in the lives of these individuals, and in turn, creating safer communities through the reduction of reoffending and recidivism.
