Growing up, Kristyn Seibert was fortunate enough to have her needs met; however, she realized that this was not the case for everyone. During her undergraduate studies, IUPUI offered her opportunities to volunteer and to care for individuals less fortunate. One of these opportunities dealt with vulnerable children facing obstacles who were in need of assistance, and they remain Kristyn’s volunteer focus today.
“I am currently a court appointed special advocate for children through Vanderburgh CASA (Court Appointed Special Advocates) in Evansville, Indiana. This nationwide organization is made up of volunteers who are assigned to court cases for children identified as needing services due to child abuse or neglect,” Kristyn states.
