We're Seeking Volunteers!

We're Seeking Volunteers!

The Albany County Probation Department is currently seeking volunteers for the Juvenile Community Accountability Board (JCAB) as it expands to the Bethlehem, Guilderland and Watervliet areas. JCAB is a program at the Albany County Probation Department and is an alternative to Family Court action that helps juveniles understand the impact crime has on the community and allows them an opportunity to repair the harm that was caused. Volunteers meet with the juvenile and their parent to develop an agreement that will require the juvenile to complete specific activities designed to repair the harm caused.

Volunteers must be at least 18 years of age and live, work or have a vested interest in the community and are required to attend a one-day training. Those interested in volunteering can download an application [PDF] or contact Lisa Mahar at (518) 487-5856 or

All completed applications should be returned to Lisa Mahar by email:; fax: (518) 487-5204; or  regular mail:
