About this opportunity
The Circle of Support and Accountability (COSA) program assists men who have been incarcerated for committing a sexual offence to reintegrate back into their local communities and accountable for the ongoing self-management, with the aim of preventing re-offending. Volunteer members provide advocacy and support, information and resources to assist in appropriate referrals, keep records of interactions and attend COSA meetings.
