Guardians ad litem are citizens who volunteer to represent children before the court, social service agencies and the community. Volunteers are trained and supervised by our program staff which includes attorneys.

On average, guardians ad litem devote approximately six hours per month and while doing so create relationships that can make a huge impact on children's lives.

To become a guardian ad litem, you must be at least twenty-one years old, pass a criminal background check and complete the thirty-hour pre-service training program to become certified.

The training program is conducted over five days. You can register for Volunteer Training M by emailing maritza.waddle@gal.fl.gov or calling (850) 606-1228 or (850) 606-1229 by Monday, February 11, 2013.

New volunteers need to complete an application before attending the training course, so register at the same time you submit your application.
