Would you recommend 4th Judicial District Guardian ad Litem Program?

I find being a GAL very fulfilling. It's an opportunity to help children when they most need it. The training program and on-going support from the program are terrific. If you are looking for a truly meaningful way to use your time and talents, look into being a Guardian ad Litem. By volunteering, you can make one child's life better, even just a little bit better, in the face of awful circumstances.

I have found that through this system it becomes a process not in a child's best interest but who does the GAL takes sides with and determine's a child's future. Some of these people hold too much power and only have part of the story and these cases effect a child for the rest of their lives.
