Guardian ad Litem - Annual Training Schedule

Volunteers Needed!

Brevard County has more than 1000 children who need someone to give them a voice and see that their best interests are served. Because the number of cases has grown tremendously in recent years, more volunteers are urgently needed.

The Guardian ad Litem is an advocate for a child in the court system. A Guardian ad Litem is not a foster parent, legal guardian, or expected to provide a home for the child. Guardians are paired with an attorney and Child Advocate Manager to make recommendations to the judge regarding a safe place or special services.

If you have a clean background, are at least 21 years of age, we want to hear from you.
