You can change a child's story by becoming a Court-Appointed Special Advocate (CASA) volunteer. After training, you will be matched to the case of an abused or neglected child who needs someone to speak up for their best interests. You will spend time with the child and interview adults involved in the child's life, then report back what you learn to a judge. CASA volunteers are regular people -- there are no education requirements. It does take a heart for helping children, and you may deal with difficult situations involving abuse and neglect. We provide a comprehensive 30-hour training and ongoing support from our volunteer managers to help you succeed for your child. All volunteers must pass a background check and commit to serve for two years in order to ensure consistency for the kids we help. CASA volunteers typically spend less than 10 hours a month volunteering.
