Community Partnership Efforts 


The Program Development and Community Partnerships Unit (PDCPU) strategically recruits, retains and collaborates with community partners to bring additional programming to all DOC facilities. Community partners include but are not limited to City agencies, community based organizations, individual and group volunteers. It supports the efforts of a number of in-jail and community partners who work with the Department to support idleness reduction efforts within NYC DOC correctional facilities as well as community stabilization.  PDCPU works in collaboration with the Volunteer/Service Provider Unit in order to expedite the safe and secure  processing of these individuals in order for them to gain access to DOC facilities.

Please submit all new programs and volunteer proposals to and we will respond in a timely manner.
