Volunteers are needed to advocate for children in the Alexandria/Arlington juvenile court system. Volunteers advocate for children in abuse and neglect cases, custody cases, and cases where a child is in need of services. Volunteers conduct interviews with the children, families, and professionals involved in the case, monitor compliance with the Court orders, and attend Court hearings where they represent the best interest of the child. The time commitment is roughly 20 hours a month, and we ask volunteers to make a one-year commitment to the program.

Spanish-speaking and male volunteers are especially needed!
