Become a Pro-Bono Attorney and Give a Voice to a Child

Fostering Independence matches a teen in foster care with a guardian ad litem team, consisting of a pro bono attorney, a case coordinator and a program attorney. As a pro bono attorney, you will represent the teen’s best interests as the guardian ad litem after completing an eight-hour training by viewing DVD's that can be checked out and taken home or viewed on the GAL website.

Other pro bono opportunities with the GAL Program include representing the child in a regular attorney-client relationship as the attorney ad litem and assisting the GAL Program using your area of expertise, including special education, probate, guardianship, appeals, or immigration
