The T.R.U.S.T. Organization Today
T.R.U.S.T. Fellow since 2012
Chairman of T.R.U.S.T.
T.R.U.S.T. is comprised of General Body Membership and an Executive Committee. The General Body consists of approximately 20 men who have completed the nine month curriculum and have exhibited integrity and leadership within the San Quentin Community. Approximately seven of the men in the General Body function as leaders of committees. Others participate in group facilitation and dissemination of the curriculum.
Our commitment to T.R.U.S.T. is two afternoons a week: Monday and Thursday. The Executive Committee, members who serve as the officers of T.R.U.S.T., are elected by the General Body. The Executive Committee meets on the first Monday of the month to discuss challenges, concerns, and solutions to move T.R.U.S.T. forward. On the second Monday, the General Body meeting is held to inform and bring the membership up to speed on any issues or news that is relevant. It is within the General Body that the men debate and vote on pertinent issues. On the other Mondays, various committees meet to plan, coordinate, and implement all the programs which operate under the umbrella of T.R.U.S.T., such as the Health Fair and Graduation as well as workshop facilitation training.
All members are required to show up for workshops which are presented on Thursdays. T.R.U.S.T. is an organization which fosters rehabilitation through a variety of topics. It allows these men to model what it is to be leaders in the San Quentin community as well as helping the San Quentin community to reconnect to their authentic selves and change men from liabilities to assets!
