Volunteer Programs

Volunteers are a vital part of COLCF. Volunteers are used to instruct the following programs:

Thinking for a Change: Thinking for a Change 4.0 (T4C) is an integrated cognitive behavioral change program that incorporates research from cognitive restructuring theory, social skills development, and the learning and use of problem solving skills.

Narcotics Anonymous: NA operates under the vision that every addict in the world has the chance to experience the message in his or her own language and culture and find the opportunity for a new way of life.

Anger Management: Anger management is a psycho-therapeutic program for anger prevention and control. It has been described as deploying anger successfully.

All three of these programs/courses assist offenders in criminal thinking to develop better coping skills to re-enter society.

Volunteer/Donation Needs

Volunteers are needed for the three programs listed above.
