Volunteer Application

About Our Approach

As an organization, we at JUST of DuPage attempt to be holistic in our approach to rehabilitation. We affirm the spiritual, mental, emotional, physical, and social needs of people and seek to address each aspect of the human person.  If you become a JUST volunteer, you will be expected to support and encourage inmates in their participation in other JUST programs besides your own. Together, we form a supportive team to surround the inmates with services that assist them in making positive life changes.  

Please be as thorough and honest as possible in your responses. Incomplete applications cannot be accepted.
