Volunteer Opportunities

The programming options at Kent County Juvenile Detention Center involve many aspects of the lives of our children. We strive to show them, through our outside group activities and volunteer programs, the wide range of experiences that may brighten and encourage them to try new things and make new attempts at changing their lives for the better. Therefore, we are always looking for new faces to influence and promote exciting new views and opportunities for the youth housed here.

For questions about the above opportunities, please contact Penny DeMario, Program Director, (616) 632-5777.
