Our mission is to be the bridge between the most vulnerable in our community and volunteers who make a difference! You will have the opportunity to work with foster youth and at-risk youth/families by dedicating at least one hour of your time each week through our three volunteer-driven programs:
1. Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA)
2. Placer Mentors
Our ultimate goal is to see an increase in community wellness as a whole. We want to see our youth/families make better life choices, succeed in school, and become happy, stable, contributing adults! We also want our volunteers to feel a sense of deep personal satisfaction through their participation in this life-changing experience!
To get started, you will need to attend an informational orientation meet-up. To see the dates we have scheduled for this month please go to: http://casaplacer.org/events/list
After attending an orientation, you can complete an application at: casaplacer.org/volunteer and someone from our program will be in contact with you shortly to schedule an interview. Should you be accepted into our program you will be required to get your fingerprints done, attend in-class training, complete the independent study material, and court observation (combined it is about 30 hours total).
We hope to hear from you soon and have you join our team! Please provide us with your name, email, and phone number so we can schedule you for an informational orientation meet-up and you can get started as soon as possible!
