Crossroads News:
Crossroads of Iowa strives to reduce recidivism and is looking for special individual/s that will provide classes inside The Polk County Jail.
A.) Dependable class facilitators for Thursday mornings each week are needed for ongoing writing classes.
B.) A backup person is needed for all facilitator's classes, when one is ill or on vacation: Monday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday mornings, 9:00am and 10:00am.  Finding Your Voice Classes are on Monday or Friday mornings, 9:00am and 10:00am. Writing/Literature classes are Wednesday and Thursday mornings, 9:00am and 10:00am.  

Materials and curriculum are provided and easy to follow. Beginning facilitators, will be trained by an experienced class leader. Our classes tend to be therapeutic for class participants, but are not religious based (the Jail has a full time Chaplain).

Inmates sign up for classes on a voluntary basis and appreciate our classes. A background check and jail orientation are required prior to facilitating a class. It takes approximately a month to go through the clearance process. A one year commitment is needed. If interested, contact Ruth Hardin, 515- 633-7968 or

Crossroads of Iowa is a Bronze level GuideStar participant, demonstrating our commitment to transparency.
