CASA volunteers are ordinary citizens doing extraordinary things. No special or legal background is required. Through training, our program equips volunteers with the necessary educational components for advocating for abused or neglected children. Our volunteers learn about courtroom procedures from speakers such as judges, attorneys, social workers and other court personnel. CASA volunteers are required to complete this 30 hour training course that includes court observation and case shadowing.
Our next class is scheduled October 2017. If you are interested in being a part of this training class, please contact the CASA office. Click here for all the training dates.
A potential volunteer must pass a screening process that consists of an application with three references, several background checks and an entrance interview. Once complete and satisfactory, the potential volunteer will be informed of training dates and other pertinent information.
For Current CASA Volunteers Only
Current CASA volunteers are required to obtain 12 hours of additional training once pre-service training is complete.
