Volunteers are an important part of our Detention Facility. They offer a wide array of services and assistance to our detained youth. Our volunteers come from many community organizations such as:
- Foster Grandparent Program
- Arts & Crafts Program
- Narcotics Anonymous
- Alcoholics Anonymous
- Various local churches - providing non-denominational services.
We are always open to more programming for our detained youth. If you have a specific program you would like to conduct as a volunteer, please contact our Detention Manager at Ceckles@washoecounty.us .
All volunteers are subject to the same background check requirements as employees of Washoe County Juvenile Services.
