How to Become a CASA Volunteer
You do not need any specialized skills to become a Court Appointed Special Advocate (CASA) volunteer. CASA volunteers are 21 or older, undergo a background and reference check, take part in a personal interview, and complete CASA volunteer training.
CASA volunteers are patient, open-minded people from all walks of life who have good communication skills, a history of following through on commitments, and a willingness to accept guidance. Above all, CASA volunteers care about children and their futures!
As a CASA volunteer, you will visit with a child under court protection regularly and advocate for their safety and well-being in monthly objective written court reports. These reports help judges make well-informed decisions about the child's future.
