CASA for Children of Multnomah, Washington & Columbia Counties will hold program orientations online for the foreseeable future. Please join us online via a Zoom videoconference to learn more about our organization, child advocate roles and responsibilities, and the process of becoming a CASA volunteer. All potential child advocates must attend one of our orientations or speak with our recruiter before applying to enter the training sessions.



Please note that orientations scheduled on the first and third Tuesdays of every month will cover volunteering in Multnomah, Washington, and Columbia Counties, while orientations held on the second Tuesday of every month are specifically focused on advocacy for children in Columbia County. If none of these options fit your schedule, or you're motivated to enter next month's training session, please inquire about the possibility of a 1-on-1 Zoom meeting with our recruiter, Jake Weiss, at 503.489.8093.
