Every year more than half a million abused and neglected children are in need of safe, permanent, nurturing homes. They are more likely than other children to face homelessness, unemployment, even prison as adults. CASA was created to make sure the abuse and neglect these children originally suffered at home doesn't continue as abuse and neglect at the hands of the system. CASA trains advocates who are appointed by judges to be a voice for these children in court.
Interns with CASA work with our development and program staff to ensure that the organization has the resources and support necessary to do this critical work.
CASA of Union County is looking for a volunteer or intern for the summer to help our program staff continue to make CASA thrive. The volunteer would commit to working approximately 15-20 hours per week from May or June through August (flexible based on your school's schedule). The intern will have the opportunity to help in many ways, such as:
Organizing and maintaining case files;
Attending court with staff and volunteer advocates;
Posting recruitment flyers throughout Union County;
Engaging in community outreach;
Preparing training materials; and
Researching opportunities to expand our volunteer base.
Interns also have the opportunity to assist our marketing and development team by assisting in organizing and prepping for Adoption Day - an annual event in November where we celebrate families adopting children from the foster care system;
assisting at recruitment events;
drafting articles for our newsletter;
updating social media; and
researching press opportunities.
