Change a Child's Life- Volunteer with TIP!

TIP volunteers work with children and families through regular contacts to make sure that the assigned child is in school every day. Volunteers also encourage their TIP child to excel in school in order to become successful.

We need attorneys to serve as Lawyers in truancy cases, but we also need non-attorneys as guardians ad litem, role models, and advocates.
