Mission Statement

Are you interested in learning about the juvenile justice system?

The Juvenile Rehabilitation Administration Mentor Program is seeking community volunteers to mentor youth in the juvenile justice system. You can make a difference as a leader in your community to change the life of a youth.

Volunteer now!

The program's mission is to increase juvenile offender's options for successful re-entry to their community from the juvenile institution by pairing them with a caring adult.

Description

The Juvenile Rehabilitation Administration is a mentoring program for incarcerated youth living in King, Snohomish, Skagit, Whatcom, Island County. Our goal is to increase juvenile offenders options and to give support for successful re-entry to their community from the juvenile institutions by matching the youth with a community volunteer mentor.

The mentor helps the youth set goals, empowers the youth to help recognize his/her individual talents and offers guidance and support to help the youth lead a drug and crime free lifestyle.

The mentor is asked to meet with the youth at least once a month while he or she is still in the institution. Once the youth is back in the community, the mentor meets with the youth at least once a week.

The mentors are asked to attend an initial training and bi-monthly seminars. The training and seminars are designed to help the mentor broaden their options and knowledge when working with their assigned mentee. Call today to schedule your training.

For more information, please contact Wiley G Carter Jr @ 206-639-6021 or wiley.carter@dshs.wa.gov
