In our classroom sessions, CASA volunteers are given the necessary tools and information needed to become a court appointed advocate. We provide 35 hours of education and training to prepare you to work with children who have been abused or neglected and are in the foster care system. Training topics include CASA roles and responsibilities, bonding and attachment, child abuse and neglect, cultural issues, domestic violence, communicating with children, conflict resolution and more. All classes must be completed before volunteers can graduate and be sworn-in as a CASA advocate.

 

You are required to attend an orientation meeting before submitting your application (see orientation schedule).
