Volunteers Needed at Fairfax County
Juvenile and Domestic Relations District Court

Volunteers are needed for services at Juvenile and Domestic Relations District Court, including language interpretation and supervision of youth involved in community service activities.

Volunteer language interpreters are needed to help staff and clients in court. Primary duties include translating court documents and facilitating communication between clients, court intake and probation staff. Secondary duties include interpreting at court hearings and helping clients review their court orders. Fluency is required in both English and another language. Applicants must be committed to working a weekly four-hour shift between 8 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. for at least six months.

The court needs volunteers to supervise small groups of court-involved youth as they perform four hours of community service on Saturday mornings. Currently, community service is performed at several locations including a residential facility for the physically and mentally challenged at Northern Virginia Training Center, a nonprofit thrift store and a nursing home. However, more sites will be added in the near future. Although volunteers do not need to be available every Saturday, a six-month commitment is required. A weekend community service counselor will provide training and will supervise all volunteers.

Applicants must be at least 21 years of age; interns who are working for class credit must be in their senior year of college or 21 years old. For more information and an application, call Gwen Robinson at 703-246-2697, or send an e-mail to gwen.robinson@fairfaxcounty.gov.
