Volunteers Needed to Help Foster Children with Disabilities in the School District

Orientation meeting on March 13 

Some of the most vulnerable children – foster children with disabilities – will soon be receiving extra help in school through the Surrogate Parent Initiative. Sponsored by the non­-profit Legal Aid Center of Southern Nevada, the two-year-old program teaches volunteer adults to serve as student advocates during school meetings and for other education issues.

The majority of the surrogate parents’ time will be spent getting their student evaluated for special education services by writing letters, making phone calls and attending meetings with school personnel. Other responsibilities may include assistance related to academic progress, social issues, truancy problems, vocational training and graduation issues.

While teaching experience isn’t necessary and volunteers don’t have to be parents, interested adults must attend an orientation meeting. It will be held Friday, March 13 from 10 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. at the Sunbelt Antique & Classic Auto Museum, located at 1424 Gragson Ave. To attend or for more information, email [email protected] or call 386-1070, ext. 140.
