Would you like a challenging and interesting volunteering position?

The Youth Justice Agency is working to make communities safer by helping children in our neighbourhoods to stop offending.

In doing so, it delivers a range of services, often in partnership with others, to help children address their offending behaviour, divert them from crime, assist their integration into the community, and to meet the needs of victims of crime.dn_screen

The Youth Justice Agency Newtownards (covering Ards, North Down and Down areas) is seeking to recruit volunteers to support their work in making communities safer by reducing the number of offences by children. They are seeking volunteers from a range of backgrounds, disciplines, ages and interests.

Youth Justice Agency volunteers plays a number of vital roles including supporting reparative activities, befriending or mentoring and helping young people to reintegrate back into their own communities.

Applications from interested persons aged 18 or over are welcomed who can commit to two to three hours per week and are willing to work unsocial hours and weekends if necessary.

Volunteers are needed from Down District, Ards and North Down and the surrounding areas.

All prospective volunteers will go through an interview, induction and training process before being formally registered as a Youth Justice Volunteer.
