YES, I want to be a CASA volunteer!

How to Become a CASA Volunteer

You do not need any specialized skills to become a Court Appointed Special Advocate (CASA) volunteer. You just need a desire to help a child, a valid driver's license, be at least 21 years old, clear a background check, basic computer and good communications skills.

Step 1:  Submit your contact information using the form below.

Step 2:  Complete and submit a CASA Volunteer Application.

Step 3:  Complete all pre-training paperwork, participate in an in-person interview and clear a background check.*

Step 4:  Sign-up for the next pre-service training session. Two to three times per year, we offer a 30-hour training session that helps volunteers learn how to advocate for the best interest of children who are under the legal protection of the court system due to abuse or neglect. Training typically takes place on weekday evenings.

 

The pre-service training curriculum, developed by the National CASA/GAL Association for Children and facilitated by our staff, includes sections that guide you through the role of the CASA volunteer, the child welfare system, needs and development of children, trauma, mental health, poverty, professional communication, cultural competence, educational needs and permanency.​ Course material will help prepare you to advocate for a child.

*Please note that interviews and training sessions are taking place VIRTUALLY due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Step 5:  After all of your paperwork is completed and a full training session is also completed, you are sworn in as an official Court Appointed Special Advocate volunteer by the court and will be assigned your first case. You will be partnered with a staff Advocate Supervisor, who provides ongoing support.

CASA of Brown County promotes equal opportunity for all applicants without regard to race, creed, color, religion, national origin, gender, sexual orientation, age, physical or mental disability, veteran status, marital status or any other consideration made unlawful by federal, state or local law, ordinance or regulation.
