CASA Kids Program will be starting a new CASA volunteer training class the first week of June for Thomas and Colquitt Counties. Training will last 5 weeks with a combination of online/independent study and 5 in-person sessions (2 hours each) Specific schedule for each county will be updated soon.
CASAs (Court Appointed Special Advocates) are everyday heroes-
ordinary community citizens with an extraordinary heart who want to make a difference in the life of a foster child.
CASAs complete a training program (no previous experience necessary) and are sworn in as Officers of the Court by a Juvenile Court Judge. They are then assigned a foster child or children in a sibling group to advocate for. CASAs investigate the circumstances that brought the child into care, meet with the child at least once a month, and submit written reports to the Juvenile Court Judge making recommendations based on what’s in the best interest of the child when the child’s case comes before the court, helping the judge make the most informed decision possible. CASA volunteers spend an average of 5 hours a month making a lifetime of difference for the abused and neglected child they serve. CASA volunteers must be at least 21 years old and not have criminal history.
