Guidelines for Infiniworks

This is a learning opportunity for you to develop an understanding of the duties and responsibilities for supervising young (under age 12) youth on a work crew. They are earning money to repay victims and restitution, while participating in a positive environment and learning new skills.

Learning Objectives

  • Gain knowledge and understanding of supervising the youngest youth we serve.
  • Learn philosophical perspectives endorsed and implemented by the Juvenile Department, such as Best Practices and Restorative Justice.
  • Observe and assist in the facilitation of completing a project and keeping youth motivated to repair harm.


  • Shifts are every other Saturday 10 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., rain or shine. Arrive 15 minutes early.
  • One intern can split their time between two or more programs. Doing so is advised for a better learning experience.
  • Attendance at all in-house trainings are required before your internship is complete. Trainings may include: Restorative Justice, CCJD overview, Working with Youth in the Community, and CPI if offered during internship time frame.
  • Additional opportunities to compliment your experience are: Court observations, Intake and Assessment (IAC) observation, informational interviews, observation of Drug Court, and observing one skills group. All will be scheduled by volunteer coordinator.
  • Hours of internship will be reported to Volunteer Coordinator monthly.
  • Trust your supervisor. They follow procedures for a purpose. Use each scenario and phone call as an opportunity to inquire about our processes and become more informed of department practices.
  • A second adult being present and listening to youth can be useful if youth discloses something that needs further attention.
