The West Virginia University Student Organization of APBP helps with much of our core work: opening letters, matching books to letter requests, wrapping books, and hauling carts full of packages to the local post office. Students also assist with volunteer training, fundraising, educational events, and service-learning activities.
In fall 2018, the student group launched the inaugural Walk for Justice, a highly successful two-mile walk that raised money and generated awareness about the need for educational opportunities inside prison. Students also created APBP’s first t-shirts!
