Boulder County Justice System Volunteer Programhttp://www.bouldercounty.org/volunteer/index.htm
For more than half a century, this program has been nationally recognized as a model for volunteer opportunities in the criminal justice field. JSVP recruits, screens and interviews volunteers for the District Attorney's Office, Community Justice Services, the Juvenile Assessment Center, Boulder County Jail programs, and Restoring Our Communities. There are many opportunities to have meaningful experiences in moving our community forward!
Get involved as mentors; help assess high-risk youth; interview adult defendants to help determine community service work; be an advocate for crime victims; help people with consumer fraud and elder-abuse complaints; teach life skills and other classes at the jail; assist with research on domestic abuse, work on arraignments with the DA's office, and more. Volunteers range from interns completing master's degree and senior level bachelor's degrees to established business and education professionals to retirees wanting to give their time and talents to myriad programs. Many volunteers go on to careers as attorneys, social workers and criminal justice professionals. Many stay for years as valued volunteer members of county teams improving life in our community.
