Join our Programs
Each of our programs have volunteer committees that meet on a regular basis to learn about core issues and strategize responses. It is through these committees that additional volunteer projects, events, and focuses develop from.
Please sign up for email action alerts, reminders about committee meetings, and more specific ways to get involved!
We are excited to offer internship opportunities to college students based on our needs and capacity during a given semester. Often that varies based on the interests, requirements, and availability of students looking for a placement. Interns should have a commitment to peace and justice, be able to work independently, and be highly motivated. We typically offer internships based on the school semester or summer calendar.
We are currently reviewing applications for the Summer of 2020.
The deadline for Spring applications is April 1, 2020. We will follow up for interviews in April and May and make selections in May.

If neither a program committee nor an internship seem like a good fit for you, but you still want to give your time to IJPC, we do have occasional volunteer opportunities. These can range from office functions, such as data input and graphic design, to special event planning, such as the Flying Pig Marathon and Annual Gathering. Please fill out this form so that we can better understand your skills, interests, and availability for volunteer opportunities.
IJPC’s operational needs involve basic office supplies. Consider donating stamps, paper, file cabinets, cards for our birthday card program for inmates, or DVDs or books for our resource library.
Contact us for more information about in kind gifts.
Contributions, large and small, make up about 60% of our operational budget. IJPC depends on your generosity to keep our programs strong, update our resources, and continue to work for peace and justice. Consider making a tax-deductible donation to support the mission of IJPC.
