About

Our Educational Advocates are trained volunteers who are appointed by the court to be the Educational Advocate for dependent children and youth of the foster care system, whose parents cannot or will not advocate for them in the educational arena.

Our Educational Advocates can represent up to 5 children at a time, attending educational meetings (IEP's) and contacting/visiting the child's school to check up on how each child is doing in school every month. The Educational Advocate is also required to write a report to the court on each child's educational progress/goals two times per year.

Advocates can spend from 3-5 hours per month minimum on each child they represent depending on when reports are due and how active they want to be in meeting with the teachers and children.

Be the difference in a child's life, and give them the gift of a brighter future!
