The Yolo County Probation Department will be implementing a Juvenile Community Review Board and is currently seeking board members. The goal of a Juvenile Community Review Board is to divert low level youth offenders from the juvenile justice system by making available to them and their families a wide array of community-based alternatives, with the ultimate objective of preventing repeat offenses.
The Juvenile Community Review Board program will be piloted in Woodland, ultimately expanding to Davis and West Sacramento. The Yolo County Probation Department is recruiting community members now who are dedicated to community reinvestment and youth prevention work.
The commitment would be one evening a week, every two to three weeks. Those interested in becoming a Juvenile Community Review Board member should complete the JRB application.
For additional questions, contact Melissa Vega, Senior Deputy Probation Officer, with the Yolo County Probation Department, (530) 406-5320. *Note: The screening process for all volunteers requires a DOJ background check via Live scan.
