We regularly add to and update the resources available on our website. The following updates were published recently.
Guardian ad Litem Pro Bono and Beyond
Guardian ad Litem Pro Bono and Beyond is a free video series produced in partnership with Florida's Center for Child Welfare featuring lectures by experts. The training will provide advocates with tools to effectively advocate for children in the dependency system.
A new subsection on the Current Volunteers page contains links to the nine Guardian ad Litem Pro Bono and Beyond videos plus their handout documents and quizzes. After watching the videos, reading the documents and taking the quizzes, volunteers may receive continuing education credit.
