Pinal County Juvenile Court Looking for Volunteers

Pinal county Juvenile Court is looking for volunteers who have a few hours to give back to at-risk youth.  TALK is a mentoring program at the Pinal County Youth Justice Center that coordinates visits between community volunteers and detained youth at the Youth Justice Center. Many young people, for a variety of reasons, do not have visitors during their stay at the Youth Justice Center.  This often leads to personal issues such as anger, depression, frustration or school disruption.

TALKS visits often include general conversation, goal setting, tutoring or game playing. TALK was created and by the Pinal County Juvenile Court Community Advisory Board as a way to bring the courts and community together to help our  at-risk youth.  Volunteers have the opportunity to give as little as 2 hours a month for this special mentoring opportunity.

To find out more about the TALK Program and other volunteer opportunities at Juvenile Court, an orientation will be held on February 23, 2013 from 9:30– 11:30am at the Youth Justice Center in Florence.   Please contact Donna McBride at Pinal County Juvenile Court Services (520-866-4098) or by e-mail atDMcBride@Courts.az.gov to register for the orientation.
