Advocating Change...Affecting Generations!

Mercer County Juvenile Advisory Council, Inc (MCJAC)

You don't have to be a social worker or a lawyer, just someone that cares about helping a kid reach more positive outcomes for their futures.

If you are willing to commit some time to a youth in need, we would love to discuss a volunteer role that is right for you!.

Please fill out the form below and MCJAC staff will contact you with more information.

"We cannot always build the future for our youth, but we can build our youth for the future."

mission & vision

MCJAC works to improve programs, services, and opportuntities for the youth of Mercer County through advocating, championing, and supporting youth-centered policies and through effective recruitment and placement of volunteers with  local agencies and community programs.


MCJAC volunteers are carefully screened and trained before being matched to fill some gap in local agencies and community programs. 

Volunteers must apply, interview, provide three reference letters, and submit all clearances.

Do you have extra time in your schedule to build a relationship with a youth in need?
