Interested in becoming a volunteer?
Advocates for Children CASA will be hosting 5 new volunteer training classes in 2019!
Our organization recruits, trains, and supports community volunteers who advocate for children who have open dependency & neglect cases, truancy cases, need additional education advocacy, or are an adolescent that may need some additional support.
Volunteers must complete 30 hours of training before being sworn in with the court, and appointed to a case. Each training will have both morning and evening class availability that meet at our office in Aurora. These 3-week long training classes will equip future volunteers with all the knowledge and wisdom necessary for becoming the best Court Appointed Special Advocate they can be. The 3-week training class will culminate with all of those who completed being sworn in by a judicial officer and a celebration!
- Must be 21 years old
- Consent to background checks (No DUI in the last 10 years)
- Complete 30 hours of training
- Commit to a 12-18 month commitment
- Spend time with CASA child/children 3-4 times a month (10-15 hours)
- Write court report for each court hearing
