The Juvenile Probation Department is actively seeking community members for its Volunteer Program. The Volunteer Program was created in the mid 1990's, when citizen volunteers began to serve on Community Justice Committees. The Community Justice Committees are committees of volunteer citizens that work with young people that have been charged with minor offenses. The primary purpose of the program is to divert young people charged with minor offenses from the Juvenile Court back to their communities where groups of volunteer citizens hold them accountable and respond to their needs. Today, there are over 200 Community Justice Committee volunteers and 40 active Community Justice Committees throughout Maricopa County.

Our Volunteer Program offers interested citizens the opportunity to serve in various capacities of the Maricopa County Juvenile Probation Department. Possible placements for volunteers include:
  • Working with a probation officer, supervisor or in detention.
  • Working with diversion programs that include Community Justice Committees, CUTS, Teen Court, or Drug Diversion. Others may work in more specialized areas such as Drug Court or Domestic Violence.
  • Internships
  • Tutors
Duties may include casework involving one or more children on a probation officer's caseload, report writing, telephone and/or personal follow-up, court observation and attendance. Assignments are based on the volunteer's preferences and skills, and offer each applicant an opportunity to develop those skills.

Becoming a volunteer at the Maricopa County Juvenile Probation Department is a simple process. The procedure includes a written application, interview, references, background check, fingerprinting, and training.
