Diversion Boards and Restorative Panels

Host Home Shelter Parents
Youth Services is looking for adults willing to house adolescents from one night to two weeks. Youth Services assists host home parents by providing a stipend and 24-hour support from on-call staff. Additionally, staff screen eligible youth, provide transportation, obtain guardian permission, and ensure that youth are engaged in daytime activities such as school, employment, or community service. If you are interested, contact Youth Services’ Host Home Coordinator Hannah.Woodring@youthservicesinc.org or call her cell (802) 689-9923.
Youth Services is seeking working professionals with a variety of fields that employ art and business practices to volunteer as mentors. You will be working one-on-one with young people ages 14-24 or in small groups via Zoom during the pandemic.

Events and Fundraising Committees
Youth Services is seeking committee members to serve on its Public Relations & Marketing, Development & Planned Giving committees, which typically meet once a month in Brattleboro. We also welcome individuals who enjoy fundraising events to assist with BrattRock Festival; Cornstock, a Cornhole Tournament, youth music and Silent Auction event; and the Annual Golf Tournament and Ball Drop. These committees start meeting early in the year and have several meetings a month just prior to the event.
