*Our November training session is offered in both Daytime and Evening tracks. Please contact Braelyn Blair if you have any questions.

 

Commitment to children, objectivity, tenacity and great communication skills are several of the key characteristics of great court appointed advocate volunteers. We'll teach you the rest in Advocacy University - Child Advocates' comprehensive volunteer training program that empowers individuals to become effective advocates.

 
Advocacy University is offered several times each year and provides an instruction-based, interactive forum for individuals who are interested in becoming a court appointed advocate volunteer.
 
*If you plan to become a court appointed advocate, you must attend an orientation session prior to attending Advocacy University.
