​Volunteer Opportunities at Harris County Juvenile Probation Department (HCJPD)

HCJPD provides supervision, supportive services and treatment programs to thousands of referred children and families each year. HCJPD understands utilizing volunteers gives the community the opportunity to enhance the lives of youth by providing meaningful activities and resources that promote pro-social, educational, emotional and spiritual growth, and healthy family relationships. HCJPD collaborates with several community partners to maximize available resources and utilize volunteers to provide opportunities that enable youth to become responsible and productive citizens.

HCJPD Community Partners

Our community partners provide the dedicated volunteers who donate their time to HCJPD. Each community partner requires potential volunteers to pass a criminal background check, F.A.S.T. fingerprinting and complete volunteer orientation training.

This is a list of our current Community Partners who may have volunteer opportunities working with our youth. We encourage individuals interested in volunteering to research several originations to determine the best fit to meet your skills and expectations. These organizations have many programs they administer, when you contact them let them know you would like to work with HCJPD youth.
