About Us

Guardians are the voice for abused, neglected and abandoned children in Adams, Canyon, Gem, Owyhee, Payette and Washington counties. 3rd District Guardian ad Litem Program provides the necessary training at no cost to volunteers. If you have any questions about our training requirements, please contact us.

It is only through our volunteers and their hard work that the Guardian ad Litem program can continue to advocate for individual children, as well as for the systemic changes necessary to protect our community’s abused and neglected children.

Our training program takes place the first Thursday in the month and goes to the fourth Thursday of the month and will be from 5:30pm – 9:30pm at a location that will be disclosed the month of. Once a year, we offer Saturday training during a month of the year. Our trainings comprise of four sessions, four hours long each. After training we have dedicated staff to shadow our volunteers through the beginnings of a case, so that questions can be answered, and “on-the-job training” can be utilized.

We have Staff available at all times for our Volunteers to help them throughout the duration of their case.

A monthly calendar is provided below for the current months training dates and times.
