King County Superior Court’s Partnership for Youth Justice, is seeking volunteers from the Bothell/Kenmore area to serve on a community accountability board (CAB).

According to a press release, the function of the board is to determine consequences for minor juvenile offenders in their community. The key role of the CAB as a community service is to balance the needs of victims, communities and offenders. The goal is to restore each of the parties, as fully as possible, from the effects of crime. The program offers an alternative to the formal juvenile justice system by diverting those youth to their community for an informal hearing.

CAB volunteer requirements include at least a one-year commitment, completion of training, two hours a month participation and a non-judgmental attitude toward youth. Hearings are held in the evenings.

For more information call 206-296-1133, email Shirley.Noble@kingcounty.gov or visit kingcounty.gov/courts/juvenilecourt/diversion.
