The concept of Juvenile Conference Committees (JCC) in New Jersey dates back 60 years, which was commemorated in 2008 by honoring a long-standing volunteer in the Monmouth Vicinage who has served the program from more than 50 years.

JCC volunteers act as an arm of the court, in a confidential manner, in hearing cases involving alleged minor offenders and making recommendations for resolution that will aid in the juveniles rehabilitation. By diverting such cases to JCC, the stigma of a court appearance is avoided and the court-community partnership is a vehicle to rectify unacceptable behavior. As of 2012, more than 2,000 volunteers serve on a JCC.
