The Larimer County Jail utilizes over 200 volunteers to offer educational, job skills, religious and other programs for inmates at the facility. The jail staff recognizes that if they don’t try to rehabilitate and provide positive opportunities for those incarcerated, they are much more likely to come back into the community and re-offend. One such opportunity is the General Equivalency Diploma (GED) tutoring program where inmates are tested and then tutored in the areas they need help in. The tutoring is done by volunteers supervised by paid staff.
