*What is a volunteer Guardian ad Litem (GAL)/Court Appointed Special Advocate (CASA)?
*The requirements & training aspects to serve as a volunteer GAL
*The incredible need for volunteers to advocate for children in the Child Protection System
*CASA Cares grant program
When the court is making decisions that will affect a child’s future, the child needs and deserves a spokesperson — an objective adult to provide independent information about the best interests of the child. While other parties in the case are concerned about the child, the Guardian ad Litem is the only person in the case whose sole concern is the best interests of the child and he or she is assigned as an advocate for the child for the duration of the court process.
This is unlike any other volunteer experience. The impact you can have on a child’s life is tremendous. Currently, there are hundreds of children in Hennepin County alone, waiting for a GAL, their spokesperson, their advocate.
Thank you for your interest in — and for considering advocating for — the abused and neglected children in our community! We look forward to seeing you and please feel free to invite others!
RSVP, yes’s only please, before 3/1 to Monica Bordonaro: firstname.lastname@example.org
