The West Virginia University Student Organization of APBP does much of our core work: opening letters, matching books to letter requests, wrapping books, and hauling cartfuls 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!
