Mission Statement

The Mission of the Guardian ad Litem Program is to ensure that every abused and neglected child involved in a Vermont court case has a well-trained, impartial, and supervised volunteer Guardian ad Litem.

Description

The Vermont Guardian ad Litem Program is seeking community volunteers to serve as court appointed advocates for abused and neglected children in Vermont's court system. This is challenging volunteer work which requires a commitment of at least two years, and on average 5-10 hours per month. The guardian ad litem is appointed to advocate for a child whom the courts are trying to find a safe, permanent home. The volunteer guardian attends court hearings, interviews the child and others (parents, foster parents, social workers, teachers, etc.) and supports and promotes the best plan for the child. There is basic pre-service training required as well as continuing education. Applications are available on the Vermont Judiciary website, www.vermontjudiciary.org/GAL; or you may call us at (802)828-6551, or email us at jud-vermontgal@state.vt.us.
