Get On The Bus brings children and their caregivers from throughout the state of California to visit their mothers & fathers in prison.

An annual event, Get On The Bus offers free transportation for the children and their caregivers to the prison.

Each child is provided a travel bag, a photo with his or her parent, and meals for the day (breakfast, snacks, lunch at the prison, and dinner). On the trip home, a teddy bear with a letter from their parent and post-event counseling.

Get On The Bus is a program of The Center for Restorative Justice Works, a non profit organization that unites children, families and communities separated by crime and the criminal justice system.
