Guardian ad Litem program seeks volunteers

The Pitt County Guardian ad Litem program is seeking volunteers to advocate for abused and neglected children in the county.

Volunteers are trained, then appointed along with an attorney advocate to represent the child's best interests in juvenile court proceedings. The program works with other agencies to locate and develop resources that would benefit the child and the child's family.

Volunteers assist by speaking up for the child's right to grow up in a safe and caring environment.

Training classes for new volunteers will begin in early September.

For additional information, contact Catherine Darby at P.O. Box 1391, Greenville, N.C., or call (252) 695-7325.
