SUPERVISORS OF CHILD WELFARE AND ATTENDANCE
Volunteers for Youth Justice (VYJ) is a volunteer-based, community supported non-profit organization whose mission is to provide a community caring for children, youth, and families in crisis.
VYJ has been built on the foundation of diversion programming to include advocacy, life-skill training and mentoring experiences for abused, neglected and at-risk children throughout Northwest Louisiana. Today, VYJ has five primary programs:
CASA (Court Appointed Special Advocates)
Youth Programs that consist of GEMS & GENTS-Youth Mentoring Programs and Leadership Academy, JUMPSTART, Teen Court, and Conflict Resolution.
Court Programs that consist of FINS(Families in Need of Services), Facts of Life, and Truancy.
TASC (Truancy Assessment Service Center) K through 5 school attendance.
TBRI (Trust-Based Relational Intervention) Trauma-focused services.

VYJ has a proven track record of success. It is a story of dreams and possibilities. Through the vision of a few active and caring individuals, the unwavering support of the Judges and court staff, and the groundswell of compassionate volunteers, thousands of our community’s children have been given a light of hope for a brighter tomorrow.
