Become a CASA Volunteer!
Are you a mature, responsible adult? Can you talk to people who are having problems? Do you have time to commit? Do you care about children? If your answers are Yes, then you may be qualified to be a CASA.
CASA volunteers come from all walks of life. The majority of them hold full-time jobs. They have a variety of professional, education, and ethnic backgrounds. No special experience is required. Volunteers are selected on the basis of their objectivity, competency and commitment.
Once accepted, volunteers are trained. Volunteers learn about the child welfare system, the juvenile court system and issues such as substance abuse and mental health. They learn about the special needs of children who are involved in custody and abuse and neglect cases.
It takes an average of 10 to 20 hours a month to be a CASA volunteer. It will likely be the most challenging and gratifying volunteer work you will ever do.
