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.
