About Us

North Carolina Guardian ad Litem equips community volunteers to serve abused and neglected children by advocating for their best interests in court.

A Guardian ad Litem advocate is a trained community volunteer who is appointed, along with a Guardian ad Litem attorney, by a district court judge to investigate and determine the needs of abused and neglected children petitioned into the court system.

The GAL volunteer’s responsibilities include digging for details in the case, collaborating with other participants in the case, recommending what’s best for child by writing court reports, empowering the child’s voice, staying vigilant by constantly monitoring.

Could you step in and speak up for a neglected or abused child in court? Could you spare a few hours a week to help build a child's future? We're seeking volunteers. Start the application process today, if you're interested in becoming a Guardian ad Litem!
