Child Custody Advocate Program (CCAP) - TRAINING
Time & Location
About the Event
Empowered Pathways is seeking volunteer advocates for their Child Custody Advocate Program (CCAP). Volunteer candidates will receive 30 hours of training and agree to background checks. A virtual orientation and training will take place on June 11th and 12th from 9 AM to noon.
The CCAP program serves youth caught in the center of contentious child custody disputes. Volunteer advocates work as a team with agency staff to gather information on the child’s environment, resources, and other information critical to determining custody. An unbiased report is then provided to the Family Court to assist them in making decisions in the best interest of the children.
“CCAP advocates are highly trained and work as a team with seasoned staff. This is an opportunity to gain experience for your resume while making a positive impact in the life of a child,” said Lu Blanchard, Empowered Pathways’ Restorative Justice Coordinator. “The training is the first step in the training and certification process.”
The training is funded, in part, by the Utica National Group Foundation. For more information contact Lu Blanchard at 315-724-1718 ext. 150.
The mission of Empowered Pathways is to help people create self-directed solutions and move forward with their lives through education, advocacy, and empowerment.
