Here's a sample of our volunteer opportunities:VIEW AS
The mission of Child Advocates of Silicon Valley is to provide stability and hope to children who have experienced abuse and neglect by being a powerful voice in their lives.
Child Advocates serves more than 800 foster children a year with a Court Appointed Special Advocate (CASA) volunteer. In Santa Clara County alone, there are more than 1,600 children and youth in the foster care system. CASA volunteers are needed to serve children who are in foster care on our wait list.
By matching volunteer CASAs with foster children, Child Advocates of Silicon Valley ensures that the needs and best interests of foster children in our program are met. Because our volunteers are court-appointed, they can thoroughly research every aspect of a child’s case, including meeting teachers, social workers and foster parents. Advocates provide reports to the court so judges can make decisions with clear and accurate information. In addition to representing children in court, CASAs serve as friends and mentors.
