Kairos volunteers serve in over 400 prisons in 9 countries and 32 states of the USA. Each country will have its own executive body and may adapt to the requirements of its local laws and institutions. However, the same core values, resources and course structure are used throughout. Communications between Kairos participants in different countries occurs through the creation of "agape" such as posters in which one Kairos group offer encouragement to another.
