What is Volunteers for Youth Justice?
If you're not familiar with Volunteers for Youth Justice, they exist to help our children locally through a myriad of programs! As a former TBRI (Trust-Based Relational Intervention) Advocate, I can personally attest to what Volunteers for Youth Justice does for our community. From advocates like myself working with foster families to providing CASA, Court Appointed Special Advocates, TASC (Truancy Assessment Service Center) and facilitating youth programs, like JumpStart, Gems and Gents Youth Mentoring, and more, every dime raised for this organization is helping children right here in our area!
How many kids do Volunteers for Youth Justice help?
Last year, VYJ was able to provide services for over 4,500 children in our area! I can't imagine what our community would be like without Volunteers for Youth Justice.
How can I support Volunteers for Youth Justice?
Volunteers for Youth Justice is always happy to take your donation and their main fundraiser each year is Battle of the Gumbo Gladiators. But now, you can the VYJ Hot Wing Challenge to their list of fun events to participate in!
