Williamsburg Walk the Talk (WWTT) volunteers invest their time and talent to mentor people leaving the Virginia Peninsula Regional Jail (VPRJ) near Williamsburg, VA, to help them have a successful fresh start.
The WWTT Mentoring Program is designed so that volunteer mentors can meet with mentees at the VPRJ prior to their release to guide them in making preparations for their release and to be available for advice and moral support after release. The purpose is to encourage a smooth and successful transition from incarceration to finding a better quality of life in the greater Williamsburg area. This is truly a win/win because getting to know people from different backgrounds helps us grow by sharing their diverse life experiences.
The long term objective is to reduce the jail recidivism rate.
