It is time to do something about the overwhelming number of young men in Prince George’s County who are growing up without the benefit of a stable and meaningful positive male role model. Young men in foster care are at a greater risk for dropping out of school, getting involved with drugs, and becoming homeless. The need for strong support in their lives is urgent. Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA) recruits and trains volunteers to advocate for the needs of youth living in foster care.
In only 10 to 15 hours per month CASA volunteers ensure that the court and child welfare systems remain focused on the specific needs of individual youth, so that these needs, including the need for safety and permanency, are addressed expeditiously.
The discrepancy between young men in foster care and male CASA volunteers is significant. While 50% of the youth CASA volunteers serve are young men who have been abused or neglected; only 10% of CASA’s volunteer advocates are men, able to draw from their perspective and experiences as they advocate for and mentor the young man in need.
This is a unique chance to become invested in your community by spending time with a young man and advocating for his best interests in court. Will you speak for abused and neglected young men in your community? For more information, please visit our website at www.pgcasa.org or call 301-209-0491
We are now accepting applications for our winter training. Please join us for our CASA informational session on 11/30/2017 to learn more about becoming a CASA!
