Program Mission

Volunteers of JHRP spend time with the incarcerated youth at the Humboldt County Juvenile Hall in Eureka. They are there to provide outside community contact during the regularly scheduled recreation time. The hope is that these young people will recognize that people within the community really care about them and that this will be a positive influence in their lives.

Service, Goals & Projects

Volunteers are available on Mondays & Wednesdays from 7:00-8:30 pm and on Sundays from 10-11am to listen and interact with these youths in whatever way they can. Basketball, ping-pong, board games, and other games are available to offer as outlets to an otherwise restrictive and monotonous routine.

Upcoming Events or Activities

Plans are being made to allow the youth to contribute to a poem book, an art book, and participate in some arts and crafts.

Community Contacts

Ray Watson from Humboldt County Juvenile Hall has been the person who coordinates contacts with employees at the Hall to schedule service hours provided by the volunteers.
