Guardian Ad Litem seeks volunteers

The Guardian Ad Litem program in Jackson, Swain, and Macon counties is seeking volunteers to help abused and neglected children as they work their way through the court system.

The Guardian Ad Litem Program trains community volunteers to be a voice for these children. Most volunteers spend four to six hours per month on a particular child’s case, which includes learning about the child’s situation, talking to the child, caregivers, professionals and others involved in the child’s life. The program requires 30 hours of training.
