Cochise County Juvenile Court Services (CCJCS) recognizes the importance and benefits of a volunteer. Volunteers supplement the corps of full-time professional juvenile probation and detention officers in an effort to improve the quality of services and provide more face-to-face contact with the youth and families. Along with other juvenile justice professionals, volunteers provide additional role models in the lives of youth. They also reduce juvenile crime by supplementing the CCJCS case management and supervision efforts.
CCJCS provides the following volunteer opportunities:
Detention Volunteer: Volunteers provide programmatic, faith-based, or educational assistance.
Community Advisory Board: Members convene monthly to provide recommendations, serve on boards and insight to the Presiding Juvenile Court Judge
Mentoring: Mentors interact with minors in both structured group settings and individual experiences for either short term or long term time commitments. All volunteer programs are administered in cooperation with the Cochise County Juvenile Court Services.
Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA): The CASA volunteer is appointed by the Presiding Juvenile Judge and acts as their “eyes and ear” to help them determine what is best for dependent children.
