  • Be the difference in the life of a child.

    We are a volunteer-based, community supported non-profit organization whose mission is to train volunteers to provide intervention & advocacy for youth who are at-risk for involvement in the juvenile justice system.

VYJ annually recruits, trains and supports hundreds of volunteers to provide services for children at-risk. Currently, VYJ can only support 60% of the children in need of crisis intervention in North Louisiana.

Being a CASA is giving me the chance to be a positive influence in their life, to show them they have someone to depend on, and not let them down. It doesn’t take much to change the life of a child. All it takes is a hug, a simple card, a phone call, or an ear to listen.

Give for Good

Thanks to everyone that supported us for our Give For Good day.   We raised over $10,000 during this event.


Volunteers Needed

Would you like to volunteer to help children in a very special way?  Are you not sure if you have enough time to dedicate to a program?  VYJ has several programs that could use your help.  Our GEMS and GENTS Mentoring programs meet twice a month for a couple of hours.  Another opportunity is to become a much needed CASA volunteer.  These volunteers become true advocates for the needs of a child.

For more information call 425-4413.
