Become a Volunteer

Inspire For A Lifetime

Welcome to the Department of Juvenile Justice (DJJ) Volunteer Program. With a strong foundation of active participants, DJJ is grateful to its many volunteers who play a vital role in improving justice involved youth lives in our facilities and our communities. The Volunteer Services Program is responsible for recruiting and screening prospective volunteers and their orientation and training. Volunteers with DJJ serve in a variety of capacities in all Regional Youth Detention Centers (RYDCs), Youth Detention Centers (YDCs), and Community Services Offices (CSOs) throughout Georgia.

Volunteer Program Vision and Mission

The DJJ Volunteer Services Program Mission is to recruit, retain and promote volunteers dedicated to providing an array of DJJ youth services. The volunteers will help motivate and empower our youth to become productive and law-abiding citizens in their communities.

The Department's Volunteer Services Philosophy is to develop and increase volunteer opportunities that enrich our young offenders. The program is established to encourage a lifetime of volunteer commitment to service.
