More than 600 community volunteers serve Washington Corrections Center for Women in many capacities, including academic internships, chemical dependency counseling, transition planning, tutoring, creative writing, diversity awareness, HIV⁄AIDS education, speech classes, theatrical movement, meditation, and staff aids. Girl Scouts of Western Washington offers the Girl Scouts Beyond Bars Program, where offender mothers act as leaders to provide craft and educational projects for their daughters.
Nationally known groups such as Toastmasters International, Alcoholics, Anonymous, and Narcotics Anonymous also provide volunteer services.
Community service crews conduct grounds maintenance, light repairs, and planting and harvesting tasks. In addition, more than 40 female offenders work on outside crews for facility–related tasks such as general facility and grounds maintenance, and sundries store operations to include stocking, order fulfillment and inventory tasks.
