Twenty-five Court Appointed Special Advocates for Children are needed to provide support for children who become dependents of the Sonoma County Juvenile Court and have to go through months and sometimes years of legal procedures.

Volunteers need to be able to spend 10 hours a month working with the youths and court. The next training session, which takes 2½ days, begins Jan. 17 at the Los Guilicos complex near Oakmont in Santa Rosa.

For information, contact executive director Millie Gilson at 565-6375.
