There are two different volunteer opportunities available.

1. Volunteer for the Board of Directors of the Society

The Calgary Youth Justice Society has a Board of Directors consisting of 9 Board members. The Board of Directors oversees the direction of the Society and makes decisions that impact the Society as a whole. The positions are for a two-yr. term, and new Board Members are elected in open positions annually at the Annual General Meeting. There are also opportunities throughout the year to assist with the work of various sub-committees within the Board. For more information, please call the Society.

2. Volunteering for a Youth Justice Committee. Some common questions:

What skills do I require?
Youth Justice Committee volunteers do not require any special skills. In fact, the greatest asset a volunteer can share is their common sense, past life experience, and a commitment to the purpose of this initiative.

Is there training provided?
There are two evenings of training provided by Alberta Justice and the Calgary Youth Justice Society. Volunteers are also required to undergo a Criminal Record Check and an Oath of Confidentiality.

What coverage do I have?
Youth Justice Committee members are considered to be volunteers of the Provincial Government and are covered for liability insurance and some benefits, if injured while performing volunteer duties.

How much time will I need to invest?
The time commitment will vary depending on several factors: what position you will undertake, how many volunteers are on the committee and how many cases the youth justice committee is working with at a given time. The committees usually meet in the evenings, and the time required of you would be flexible.

What will I gain from the experience?
Volunteering for a Youth Justice Committee can be a very valuable and rewarding experience. Your experience will leave you with enhanced interviewing skills, the ability to work with within a team, increased knowledge of our criminal justice system, a better understanding of youth in your community, and a feeling of satisfaction knowing that you have made a difference.
