We are looking for Spanish-speaking volunteers to be paired with children in federal custody undergoing deportation removal proceedings. Our Child Advocates attend a two-day training, undergo federal and local background checks, and are matched with an individual child. Once a volunteer Child Advocate is matched with a child, they will meet once a week for an hour each week at the facility where the child is detained. Volunteers are closely supervised and supported by our staff of social workers and attorneys. Our next training will be held on July 23 and 24. Volunteers must be at least 21. Contact Geoff Wood for more information!
