Volunteering at Youth Services

General information about volunteering at Youth Services.

Douglas County Youth Services is dedicated to development of programs which will enrich the lives of youth, by providing learning experiences while they are in our care. We rely on volunteer involvement to assist us in proving innovative and quality programs to the youth we serve. Volunteers may serve in a variety of capacities, e.g. providing services on a short-term basis, becoming a regular participant in current agency programs, completing a practicum or internship program, conducting program evaluations, data collection activities or assisting in implementation of new programs.

Kansas Administrative Regulations require that volunteers at the detention center and the detention day school programs undergo the same recruitment, screening, selection, and performance evaluation process as facility employees.

As Volunteers, we will need you to provide the following:

  • An Application
  • Information for a criminal background investigation
  • A health assessment completed by a licensed physician, with documentation indicating that you are free from tuberculosis.

For more information on volunteering, see our Volunteer Handbook. If you have any questions, please contact our Detention Operations Manager, Casey Crane.
