Volunteer Training Workshop

The next Thresholds Volunteer Training Workshop will be conducted this weekend, March 26 and 27. The training will be provided by excellent trainers. The graduate volunteers will join the long list of people who have made a difference in the lives of Delaware County inmates since 1975.

Neumann University has once again donated to Thresholds space in the Rocco A. Abissinio Building, which has convenient parking and elevator service to the second floor classroom. Use the Concord Road entrance. The building is on the right.

Orientation will be held from 1 to 3 pm. The 16 hours of training will be given from 8:45 am to 4 pm. Training starts promptly at 9 am. A Continental breakfast and lunch will be provided each day.

There is still time to ask someone to join the Thresholds team.

Please take a few moments to check out our website at: There you will find a brief primer on how the six steps to good decision making lead to behavior modification and a more productive life for our graduates. A variety of engaging drawings and comments from inmate clients are also sprinkled throughout the pages. And a few instructional game tricks, such as art forming, are there for you to challenge your own decision making skills.

Save the Date because You Are Invited!

The Annual Dinner Meeting for our membership will be held Monday, May 2, at 6 P.M., at Generations Restaurant, 9 State Road, Media. There is ample free parking. Bring interested friends and neighbors so we can spread the word about the important work of Thresholds volunteers. We hope to see you there as we celebrate our service for the year and share plans for the future. Invitations will be coming soon. RSVP Connie Roggio by replying to this email.
