Thirty-First District Court Service Unit Volunteers

In recognition of the tremendous resource a non salary volunteer staff can represent and the Juvenile Justice experience the Court Service Unit can provide an individual the Court Service Unit provides a Volunteer Program in an effort to maximize these two concepts to the best interest of all concerned. The program offers opportunities in most areas of our operation; however our most frequently requested volunteer positions include Probation Officer Interns/Volunteers and Court Desk Volunteers. For Probation Officer Interns/Volunteers, we provide extensive training and in depth “hands-on” experiences in working with youth and their families, who are under the auspices of Juvenile and Domestic Relations Court. Our volunteers are sworn in by Judges and paired with experienced officers to learn the important aspects of being a Juvenile Probation Officer. We offer placements for both undergraduate and graduate students with colleges and universities in and outside the state of Virginia for both academic credit and/or valuable work experience.

Other volunteer opportunities include clerical support, transportation, language translation, Drug Court, assistance with groups, and numerous other areas.

Our volunteers can work from once a month to everyday…days, nights and weekends. Note - for Probation Officer interns/volunteers we request a minimum of 16-24 hours a week.
