Caring Adults Needed! Advocate for children in foster care
147 people are interested
Hundreds of abused, neglected and abandoned children are the subjects of legal proceedings each year in Clark County. The Court Appointed Special Advocate (CASA) is a trained volunteer representing the best interests of the child in legal proceedings, insuring that the child's voice is heard in this complicated system. The CASA follows the child's progress throughout the court intervention, advocating for his/her needs. To provide this service for a child, the volunteer investigates the facts of the case, recommends a course of action to the court, monitors progress, and encourages positive communication. Initial training is provided quarterly, as well as ongoing, in-service training sessions. We particularly need more male, bilingual and bicultural volunteers. Average 10-12 hour per month commitment. Must be at least 21 years old and volunteer for a minimum of two years.
Clark County CASA holds monthly 1 hour informational sessions to learn more about the role and commitment. To find out when the next session is, please visit our website at https://ywcaclarkcounty.org/what-we-do/our-programs/casa/casa-newsevents/.
We'll work with your schedule.
