They will no doubt train you.
Just remember though, you are not there to make friends (and friendships will probably be discouraged both by the prison and the group leader you go with).
Do not promise to make any phone calls or take any messages to or from the outside. Or any packages!
Make no promises about anything!
Do not give any personal information.
Do not get personally attached.
Do not talk about sex.
Do not try and look or act cool.
Do not brag about anything.
And when outside do not talk about what you see or experience on the inside.
