About

Join Child Advocates of Silicon Valley at our upcoming Volunteer Info Session to learn how you can serve as a mentor and friend to a child in foster care.

As a Court Appointed Special Advocate (CASA) volunteer, you will be empowered by the courts to provide critical emotional and educational support to your advocate child and ensure that child's voice is heard in the dependency court system.

Most importantly, you will be the one consistent adult in your foster child's life, as well as a mentor and friend.

Who Can Be a CASA Volunteer? You do not need to be a lawyer or social worker to be a volunteer. We welcome people from all walks of life. We are simply looking for people who care about children and have common sense. Volunteers must be at least 21 years of age.

As a CASA volunteer, you will be thoroughly trained by Child Advocates and well supported by our professional staff to help you with each child's case.

Attend Child Advocates next volunteer orientation to learn how you can make a lasting difference in a foster child's life!
