A Volunteer Experience Unlike Any Other

Our Advocate Volunteers are the best volunteers Silicon Valley has to offer. That’s because all of our Advocate Volunteers are trained to be Court Appointed Special Advocate (CASA) Volunteers.

As a CASA Volunteer you’ll be appointed by a judge to be a mentor, advocate and voice for a child in foster care. Working with children in foster care can be tough and demanding but it’s also very impactful. CASA Volunteers have the ability to help a child in foster care overcome the effects of having experienced abuse, neglect and/or abandonment. This can completely alter the life trajectory of a child.
