Juvenile Justice Jeopardy seeking volunteers

United Way of the Midlands is recruiting volunteers for Juvenile Justice Jeopardy!

JJJ is a game– played with youth 12-18 years old that works towards fostering a better understanding of the justice system and legal rights, in addition to increasing positive interactions with law enforcement and peers.  JJJ will be focused in Richland County, and we are planning to begin the project in early 2020.

We are seeking approximately 15 JJJ Leaders that would attend training in early February (either 2/7 or 2/8 9-11 a.m.) to learn how to lead the activity and commit to serving as a Game Leader for at least three 90-minute sessions during the next year. The sessions would be scheduled by United Way so the Game Leader’s responsibility would be to lead the game and master the game questions (which are customized to our local and state laws relative to youth).

To recruit our Game Leaders, we can make brief presentations at large group settings like an office staff meeting and are hosting a couple of information sessions:

Interest session #1: Friday, January 10th 8:00 a.m. United Way of the Midlands 1818 Blanding Street in Columbia

Interest session #2: Tuesday, January 14th 4 p.m. United Way of the Midlands 1818 Blanding Street in Columbia

Training dates set for GAL/CASA but…

you need to submit an application before the training starts.  A great thing to do on Winter Break

Here is the link to the online application and other forms:

Don’t forget to submit a Volunteer Enrollment Form. This lets the Pro Bono Program know who is involved in making a difference in the lives of children
