There are a wide range of opportunities within Sheffield Youth Justice Service for volunteers to gain experience, understanding and knowledge of the work within the YJS, help young people, and benefit the community as a whole.

Sheffield YJS is always looking for new volunteers and currently has over 60.  Our volunteers come forward for a variety of reasons including seeking a career change or  wanting to gain knowledge and experience to enhance their career prospects. Others may have retired and are looking to put something back into the community.  Our volunteers come from all backgrounds and walks of life and each bring their own special skills and attributes to the team and play a crucial role in preventing re-offending in Sheffield and safeguarding young people.

A Community Panel Member that recently attended training with Sheffield Youth Justice Service said . . .

I have been meaning (rather belatedly) to say thank you to you and to the speakers at the volunteers evening last week.I thought it was a very helpful event and I realise how much work all the officers put into making the session participatory and interesting.It certainly set me thinking!”

If you feel you have the ability, time and commitment to relate to young people, and wish to develop your own skills and at the same time gain satisfaction in knowing that you have contributed to help and improve a young person’s life, please contact the Youth Justice Service at youthjusticeservice@sheffield.gov.uk or telephone 0114 2288555.
