Volunteers are among our most valued partners.  Probation Department volunteers serve in functions that support and strengthen the work of probation officers in institutions and in the community.  For example, our faith-based volunteers serve the spiritual needs of youth in detention centers and camps.  Volunteers can also be found throughout the system conducting activities that improve the well-being of youth from health and fitness to providing education, cultural and entertainment events.  Special holidays are filled with volunteer-based activities that edify the lives of youth on probation.  To join our elite cadre of volunteers call 310-761-3937 or email us at
