Volunteer with the Maricopa County Justice Courts
The mission of the Justice Court Volunteer Program is to create an environment in which volunteers are challenged and fulfilled, and encourage them to ask questions and
make suggestions to further advance the program. No matter what cause or organization they choose, volunteers are a valuable resource and have an exceedingly positive
impact on their communities.
There are 26 Justice Courts in Maricopa County. The variety and volume of cases handled by the Justice Courts provides a challenging opportunity for volunteers,
who offer much needed support to the court staff to assist in the completion of more time consuming and necessary tasks, helping ensure litigant’s experiences
in the court are as efficient and successful as possible.
The average citizen is more likely to come into contact with the Justice Courts than any other judicial system in the State, and time spent in court is not typically
a very positive experience. However, a volunteer will be in the unique position to learn about and come to understand court procedures and all the positive aspects
the Justice Courts have to offer. Volunteers become a powerful connection between the community and the local courts that serve the community.
The minimum age for volunteering with the Justice Courts is 16 years old, and requires fingerprints and a background check.
Volunteer opportunities include:
- Court Clerk Assistant
- Bailiff Assistant
- Information Desk/Help Desk Greeter
