I Am for the Child


Thank you for choosing to become a volunteer with the 19th Judicial Circuit Guardian ad Litem. From this point on, you are part of a team that will help guide you through the world of child advocacy.

This training is the certified pre-service training that is required to become a volunteer for the 19th Judicial Circuit Guardian ad Litem Program (GALP). Training is in a relaxing office environment with refreshments so please, dress casual. There will be hourly breaks and a break for lunch. Training will cover things such as: recognizing case notes, activity logs, dependency reports, court orders, permanency notices, educational advocacy, and the path of a case. The perspective and experiences of licensed Child Advocacy Managers (CAMs) and licensed Attorneys will help shape your understanding as to what your role is as a GAL Volunteer. Some of the training is interactive to stimulate and facilitate communication and understanding which is very important in child advocacy. Through this training, you will gain a fresh understanding of why it is important to advocate for children that are in the system.

This will be a two day training. Training days/times will be March 7th from 9:00am-4:00pm and then March 8th from 9:00am-4:30pm.

Prior to training there is an orientation phase. Please contact Omar Walker (Volunteer Recruiter) at: 772-785-5804 or 5875 for details.
