Volunteers in Detention

The New York City Department of Juvenile Justice works with a number of individuals who are interested in volunteering their time to work with youth in detention. Volunteers serve as positive role models for youth in detention while helping them to learn valuable life skills. In 1999, the program was recognized as the most outstanding volunteer program in city government by the Mayor and the Mayor’s Voluntary Action Center Task Force on Volunteerism in Government. Individuals interested in volunteering should write or email the Director Program Services at (212) 442-7268 / email –
