To provide equal justice for children appearing before the court.
The advocate for those who have no advocates.
To provide leadership in Juvenile Corrections and Rehabilitation.
The Pierce County Juvenile Court has exclusive juisdiction, as defined by RCW Title 13, over those juveniles within our community who violate the criminal laws of this state or who are in need of protection and advocacy as a result of abuse, neglect, or abandonment. The department is responsible for the effective administration of Juvenile Court, detention, intake/investigation, community supervision, dependency, diversion and adoption services.
Whether you are looking for an internship, a place to volunteer, or a future career opportunity; the Pierce County Juvenile Court is a great place to serve.
I would recommend this opportunity to those who are interested in mentoring children (predominantly high school teens who struggle with authority), and to those who are interested in a career as a Juvenile Probation Officer in the future.
This is a great environment, and everyone is understanding and friendly towards each other. This isn't a typical office internship, and there are many different opportunities available to interns/volunteers.
This program sounds like a good way to help the youth of Tacoma. The youth of Tacoma needs to be guided even though , they might have done some wrongs. This also helps the community help their people. It seems to me for the youth, they have seen and contributed to wrong so much, they forgot to see the light and know whats right...
I would like to spent my time volunteering with your organization because I think that the economic down and most people lay off job so that above that matter made volunteering for held people they have a problem with legal issus.
