NEW Volunteer Opportunities
with our Juvenile Justice Ministry 

What is a "Juvenile Justice Ministry"?
JJM is a youth outreach program taking place in a variety of institutions (i.e. detention centers, correctional facilities, group homes, residential treatment centers, emergency shelters, etc.) Our mission is to help young people develop a way of living taught by Jesus Christ; balancing the physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual aspects of life. We build valued relationships that are sustained through ongoing involvement as they re-enter their communities.

What kind of volunteers are needed?
Right now, we are looking for people to partner with us to help kids staying at the Marion County Juvenile Detention Facility. The need in the facility is great, and there are so many opportunities before us. Here is what we are praying for:

  • Group facilitators, people passionate about teaching and leading small groups
  • People who are interested in one-on-one mentorship relationships

If you are interested, please join us for one of our training sessions being offered throughout May, June, July, August and September 2017. Each session includes 4 weekly classes held on Tuesday evenings at 6 p.m. at the main CIYFC office located at 1641 E Michigan St, Indianapolis, IN 46201.

More Volunteer Opportunities 

We depend on the involvement of caring adults to accomplish our mission—to reach local teens with the message that God loves them and has a plan for their lives.

We are asking God to raise up caring adults who will establish relationships with kids around the area. We need volunteers who will serve directly with students, as intercessors in prayer, finanical partners, and help with in our office with tasks such as our monthly mailings. Where ever your gifts and talents lie, you can make an eternal difference in a young person's life.
