Assisting attorney's within Guardians ad Litem in representing the best interests of abused, neglected, or abandoned children.

VOLUNTEER ADVOCATES FOR CHILDREN PROGRAM

We’d love to have you on our team. I’d like to thank you for your interest in helping abused and neglected children involved in the dependency system in Orange County, Florida.

In Orlando, the Legal Aid Society administers the Guardian Ad Litem (GAL) Program. While only attorneys can serve as a GAL, there are many in our community who are not attorneys; however, volunteer their time to help abused, neglected and abandoned children. For these individuals, we are pleased to offer our Volunteer Advocates for Children (VAC) Program. This program is designed to train, certify and supervise non-attorneys to serve as support to our pro bono GALs and Staff Attorneys, by visiting children and reporting on their placement, services needed, and well-being.

To qualify for our VAC program, you must be at least 18 years of age, be in good health and of moral character. The time commitment that is required during that year is based on the amount of time you have available in conjunction with the GAL and/or child’s needs. The position requires you to visit with the child once per month (in person or virtually) and submit a written report of the child’s status. This is an excellent opportunity for those who want to get hands on experience in social work and/or law.

If you or someone you know would like to make a difference in the lives of children as a lay volunteer with the GAL Program, please contact Tykeem McCord, Assistant VAC Coordinator, via email at tmccord@legalaidocba.org. As well, visit our website at, legalaidsociety.org for more information.

We can’t do it without you!
