The Youth Justice Agency Ballymena Area Team (covering Antrim, Ballymena, Coleraine and Limavady areas) is seeking to recruit volunteers to support their work in making communities safer by helping children to stop offending.

An information evening will be held on Wednesday, June 4, from 6-8pm at the Youth Justice Agency which is located at 7 Springwell Street, Ballymena.

They are seeking volunteers from a range of backgrounds, disciplines, ages and interests within the area.

Youth Justice Agency volunteers fulfil a number of roles including supporting reparative activities, befriending or mentoring and helping young people to reintegrate back into their own communities.

The Agency welcome applications from interested persons aged 18 or over, who can commit to two to three hours per week and are willing to work unsocial hours and weekends if necessary.

All prospective volunteers will go through an interview, induction and training process before being formally registered as a Youth Justice Volunteer.
