Pen Pal Program

Aleph’s Pen Pal program is a unique initiative offering the opportunity for incarcerated men and women to be paired up with an Aleph volunteer who connects with them through email correspondence or letter writing. The goal of the program is for these individuals to connect about their lives,  gain new friendship and camaraderie, and ultimately bring just a little more  brightness to their experience. As one individual shared,  “Your letters to me have improved my mental wellbeing and outlook on life… It’s given me courage to push forward.”

If you or someone you know in prison would like to be connected to a pen pal, or if you would like to volunteer to be a pen pal, please email [email protected] and put “pen pal request” in the subject line. You can also sign up using our online form.
