JJM seeks to engage young people as they are met in a variety of youth-serving institutions (detention centers, probation, correctional facilities, parole, group homes, residential treatment centers, and emergency shelters). These valued relationships are sustained through ongoing involvement as they reenter their communities.
Northern Colorado Youth for Christ, through our Juvenile Justice Ministry program, reaches a large number of institutions across the Front Range. We employ a number of full-time staff as well as volunteers to meet with, mentor, and guide young people as they transition into/out of these institutions and back into community.
For questions or more information, please email Zac Valdez or call (720) 443-8635.

Being a JJM mentor requires a commitment to meet with youth in a youth facility and then possibly meeting with them after they leave a facility. Generally, this requires a year-long commitment to meeting once a week or four times a month.
