Ninth District Court Service Unit Volunteers

Student Internships/Practicum as a Juvenile Probation Officer with the 9th District Court Service Unit

The Ninth District Court Service Unit offers placement opportunities for undergraduate and graduate level students. Students will be exposed to a wide variety of experiences in the juvenile justice system including intake processing, social history preparation, probation case management, direct care services, parole planning, and court procedure. A minimum of forty hours of orientation to the Juvenile Justice System in Virginia will be provided with additional formal training in specific areas of the above topics as the opportunities arise. This would include attending new probation officer orientation sponsored by the Department of Juvenile Justice Training Unit on space available. The Ninth District Court Service Unit consists of a district office in Williamsburg and four branch offices in Yorktown, Gloucester, New Kent and King William, which serves the eleven jurisdictions of the Ninth Judicial District.

There are opportunities to be supervised by probation officers that hold master degrees and/or state certified substance abuse counselors. Training in the use of various screening instruments such as DAI, CANS and Department Risk Assessments would be offered.

To enhance the student's overall practicum experience the expectation would be that the student commits to this placement for a full semester on at least on a ½ time basis of twenty hours per week. Students should be in their junior year and/or attending graduate school. Those students considered for placement will be expected to undergo a thorough background investigation including driving record after submittal of a volunteer application and interview. If travel is required, reimbursement for mileage or state vehicles will be provided.

Please feel free to contact us for further information.
