Become A Volunteer

Guardian ad Litem (GAL) volunteers with Kids’ Voice advocate for children in paternity, divorce, guardianship, and adoption cases. As a GAL, you will conduct home visits, investigate the children’s situations, interview family members and other service providers, and write a report with recommendations for the court. You may also appear in court and testify on the children’s behalf. Each GAL volunteer receives training from the Kids’ Voice staff, and our volunteers are supported and advised by a Kids’ Voice staff attorney throughout the case. Volunteers do not have to be attorneys.

Attorney – Pro Bono GAL Volunteer
Kids’ Voice offers an opportunity for attorneys located in Marion County and the surrounding counties to serve pro bono as a GAL on Kids’ Voice cases. Attorneys who would like to volunteer can earn up to 7 free hours of CLE by from completing the GAL Care training course. The GAL training covers topics such as Dissolution, Paternity, Reporting Child Abuse, Guardianship, Ethics, and the nuts and bolts of being a GAL volunteer. The GAL training is offered throughout the year and dates can be found on our event calendar.
