Foster Kids with Disabilities Need Help with School Issues -- Orientation/Training

Train to provide for children with disabilities in the foster care system. Sponsored by the non¬profit Legal Aid Center of Southern Nevada, the Educational Surrogate Parent Program trains volunteers to serve as parents for children with disabilities in the foster care system. These Educational Surrogate Parents guarantee that someone is there to ensure educational consistency and support for these students as they navigate both the Clark County School District and foster care.

Interested volunteers are invited to attend an orientation/training meeting on Thursday, February 27, 2014 from 5:30 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. at Legal Aid Center of Southern Nevada Office, 725 E. Charleston Blvd, Las Vegas, NV 89104. No experience is necessary to become an Educational Surrogate Parent – only a desire to be an advocate for foster children. Training and support will be provided to volunteers throughout the life of their assigned case. Under federal law, employees of the school district and social workers are prohibited from volunteering. For more information or to attend the training, contact Legal Aid Center at surrogates@lacsn.org or 702/386-1070, ext. 1446.
