Who Can Become a CASA Advocate?

People who give their time to CASA advocacy come from all walks of life. Being a CASA volunteer does not require any special education or background, simply the desire to help abused and neglected children find safe, permanent homes.

What does it take to become a CASA volunteer?

Step 1:

Each candidate must be at least 21 years old, pass a background check and participate in a 30-hour training course.

Step 2:

After completing the training, the volunteer is assigned his first case. A volunteer’s average time commitment to a case is approximately 4-8 hours per month.

Step 3:

An average case lasts about a year and a half. Volunteer advocates are asked to stay with a case until it is closed.

Volunteer advocates have support and supervision every step of the way and always have resources available.
