About this event

Please join us for a virtual information session! You will learn more about who we are as a Program, what your role will be as a volunteer and how to become a volunteer. The Guardian ad Litem (GAL) Program is a powerful and effective voice in advocating for the best interests of Florida’s abused, abandoned and neglected children. The GAL program is recognized and respected as a partnership of community advocates and professional staff. To the fullest extent possible, this vision of the program is realized through volunteers who advocate as Guardians ad Litem for the children they serve. A Guardian ad Litem is so much more to a child than just their court appointed child advocate. A GAL volunteer often becomes a role model, mentor, educational surrogate, friend, confidant, and most important, a consistent caring person on whom the child can rely on.

We have adapted our onboarding and application process to comply with the COVID-19 virus social distancing guidelines. All of our training is currently done online and the visits with the children and court are held virtually via Zoom. It only takes 2-3 hours per week to volunteer with us. The time commitment hours are flexible since you can adapt the time that you dedicate to the case to your availability. It is a long-term commitment since a case can last from twelve to eighteen months.

We will provide the Zoom link once you have registered for a session.
