Become A Volunteer
Our goal is to have a volunteer for every child who needs one. Volunteers are always needed, but we urge our male and bilingual candidates to act now to answer an immediate need.
As a Children In Placement volunteer in the juvenile and probate courts, you will work closely with a coordinator who shares responsibility with you on cases. Most of your time will be devoted to meeting with the child(ren), parents, social workers, foster parents and the therapists who are involved in the case. Once you have completed your initial assessments, you will make a report of your observations and make recommendations to the presiding court. Since most of the appointments can be arranged around your own schedule, it is possible to be a volunteer and be employed on a full time basis. You must be 21 years of age, able to operate a computer, and you must have a car or access to one for your own transportation.
