PTI Call for Volunteers

The Prison Teaching Initiative at Princeton is currently teaching 15 courses in New Jersey Department of Corrections prisons and six courses at Fort Dix Federal Correctional Institution. We do this with the support of 59 volunteer instructors and countless tutors who provide supplemental academic support at two local state prisons on Friday evenings. Nearly all of our instructors are graduate students or post-docs at Princeton University.

PTI is currently looking for volunteer tutors, and we will soon be taking applications from new instructors for the Summer and Fall 2017 terms. Anyone with a high-school diploma or higher may tutor, and instructors must have completed at least one year of graduate school. If interested, please contact the PTI program coordinator, Tara Ronda, at We look forward to hearing from you!
