Volunteer Program

The Merced County Probation Department recognizes the important contributions made by volunteers. We offer responsible citizens the opportunity to volunteer for a variety of important assignments throughout Merced County.

All volunteers will have their strengths matched with the needs of the Department.

The mission of the Volunteer program is to assist in providing mentoring opportunities, preventative, and follow-up services to both adults and juveniles while gaining experience, building positive relationships, and networking with various community-based organizations as well as other members of the criminal justice community.
