Volunteers needed to help foster children with disabilities get help

Sep 29, 2015

Children in the foster care system with disabilities need help to make sure they get necessary services to excel in school, and a program providing that support needs more volunteers.

Sponsored by the non-profit Legal Aid Center of Southern Nevada, the Educational Surrogate Parent Program trains volunteers to serve as student advocates during school meetings and for special education issues. No special experience is necessary to become an Educational Surrogate Parent.

There will be an information session September 30, from 6 to 8:30 p.m. at the Boyd School of Law on the UNLV campus. More information from or 702-386-1070, ext. 1446. There's more information here.
