The mission of the Texas Juvenile Justice Department, as the state’s juvenile corrections agency, is to promote public safety by partnering with youth, families, and communities to provide a safe environment where youth in the agency’s care and custody receive individualized education, treatment, life skills and employment training, and positive role models to facilitate successful community reintegration
The Texas Juvenile Justice Department places a significant focus on volunteer services realizing volunteers are an essential element in the rehabilitation and re-entry of offenders into the community. Volunteers assist in providing literacy and educational assistance, life skills, job skills, and parenting classes. Volunteers facilitate spiritual programs, as well as arts and crafts programs, faith-based programming, and other programs determined by TJJD to aid in the transition between confinement and society.
