Here's a sample of our volunteer opportunities:VIEW AS
The Department of Juvenile Services is a division of Jefferson Parish government. Its mission is to provide supervision and rehabilitation to troubled youth and their families residing within the confines of Jefferson Parish who have come to the attention of the Jefferson Parish Juvenile Court.
Volunteer Services recruits, trains and places volunteers to work with our youth population in the areas of Internships, Mentors, and Tutors.
The Department of Juvenile Services holds as its purpose to protect the community from delinquency, to impose accountability for offenses committed and to equip juvenile offenders with the required competencies to live productively and responsibly in the community.
Assisting in the department's delivery of services is the Volunteer Services Program. All volunteers go through an application, interview, background screening and training process before placement.
