Native Volunteer needed for DOC

8/19/21 (Thu)

Wisconsin Department of Corrections is seeking a volunteer for the role of Native American Advisor. Please see the announcement below:

We have institutions at Stanley and Chippewa Falls that are in need of a Native Advisor Volunteer. This is a position with an honorarium of $25.00 an hour plus $0.51 cents per mile mileage round trip also being paid.


An average day of a Sweat Lodge Service at SCI would be about $200.00 + mileage. (2 Sweat Lodge Services)


Our Native population has had a difficult few years with no Sweat Lodge Services or Pipe Ceremonies. Our policies state that inmates cannot run their own services or ceremonies, and so we need an advisor to participate or supervise these events.


If there are questions please feel free to contact me.


Thank you again in your assistance and consideration in this matter.
