The most important trait in any of the Northern Star Juvenile Diversion volunteers is one’s desire to be a positive role model to youth to help prevent them from going down a criminal path.
Volunteers must be willing to make a 6 week commitment to the juvenile diversion youth. The 6 week commitment consists of an hour and a half a week spent with the youth in a group setting and up to one hour of prep time before the group session.
All volunteers must be 21 years of age or older and must pass a criminal background check.
No prior knowledge of the juvenile justice system is required. We welcome volunteers from all backgrounds, professions, and ages. The youth enjoy a variety of volunteers and the diverse make-up of our volunteer staff brings a wealth of knowledge and perspective to the youth.
