About

Court Appointed Special Advocate (CASA), Prince George's County is looking for Spanish-speaking volunteers to advocate for abused and neglected children. Spanish-speaking volunteers need not be native speakers but should be proficient in communicating in both English and Spanish. CASA is a non-profit that trains and supervises volunteers who advocate in the courts for the best interest of children who are in foster care due to abuse or neglect.

CASA provides 37 hours of training 4 times a year. Once interviewed, screened and trained, volunteers make a minimum one year commitment advocating for a child in foster care. We are currently interviewing for our Winter Evening Training that runs from 01/17/17 to 02/16/17 from 6pm to 9pm on Tuesdays and Thursdays. Applications for Winter Evening Training are due by 01/06/17.
