The Virtual Volunteer Information Session will provide an overview of the DeKalb County CASA Program for those interested in volunteering. Please note, the information session is virtual but many of the volunteer activities will occur in person. DeKalb County CASA is currently recruiting Court Appointed Special Advocate, Education Advocate, and Ambassador volunteers. A CASA volunteer is a trained community member appointed by a juvenile court judge to advocate on behalf of the best interests of an abused and/or neglected child in foster care. An Education Advocate is a CASA that focuses on the educational needs of a child. An Ambassador helps educate and raise community awareness regarding the DeKalb County CASA Program and the children served. During the virtual information session, DeKalb CASA staff will provide an overview of the history of the organization, offer information on volunteer roles, commitment expectations, discuss the volunteer training sessions, and explain the next steps; application, references, staff interview, and answer questions.
