Seeking Volunteers for Diversion Panels in January
Are you open-minded, compassionate and looking to contribute to your community? Do you believe in giving a person a second chance for a small crime rather than a jail sentence? Would you rather help individuals make amends and find new ways forward? With a small time commitment of 2.5 hrs. a month you can have a huge impact as a court diversion volunteer panelist. Learn more or sign up for panelist training by emailing email@example.com or calling 802-257-0361 x134.
Any time of year your donations matter! Any time of year there are young people in crisis who are turning to Youth Services. Any time of year even a modest contribution can go a long way with a community-based nonprofit like Youth Services, especially during COVID-19! We parlay your gift into more services for young people and families. Give in honor or in memory of a friend or loved one lost. When it's your birthday, encourage donations to Youth Services instead of gifts. No matter what your reason, Youth Services counts on your generosity!
Is being in close quarters during the time of COVID-19 exacerbating or creating conflicts with your middle or high school student? Is this time of remote-learning creating academic or behavioral difficulties that you and your teen are having a hard time overcoming? Strategize with Youth Services and receive support for youth ages 12 and older. Call 802-257-0361 x242, or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Are you open-minded and compassionate? Do you want to do something good for your community? Are you from Windham County, Vermont or Cheshire County, New Hampshire?
Do you believe in giving a person a second chance for a small crime rather than a jail sentence? Do you want to help people in this position make amends and find a new way forward?
If so, becoming a Youth Services' Court Diversion panelist is for you! By volunteering once a month on one of our restorative justice panels, you can have a big impact on our community!
Our Diversion Program assists individuals who have committed crimes to take responsibility for their actions, discuss who was harmed, understand how they were harmed, and make amends in a meaningful way to make things as right as possible.
Start your experience as a Youth Services volunteer by attending four Zoom training sessions, scheduled Tuesday evenings in January ( 5, 12, 19, and 26) from 6 p.m.-8 p.m.

Youth Services hopes to restart the program in the spring, if funding can be found. Take a listen! ... See MoreSee Less
