Yolo County CASA (Court Appointed Special Advocates) is seeking volunteer child advocates. We train, screen and support volunteers to advocate for abused and neglected children in the foster care system. After successfully completing our 30 hour training and a background screening, volunteers are appointed by the juvenile dependency court judge to advocate for a child in the foster care system for a minimum 18 month commitment. CASAs enjoy spending time with the child they’ve been appointed to, talk with other professionals and caregivers in the child’s life, and advocate for that child’s best interests. Every child who has a CASA volunteer knows they have a committed, caring adult helping to ensure that their voices are heard and their needs are met.
Yolo County CASA holds information sessions every Thursday at noon (drop-ins welcome) and 6pm (with RSVP only) or by request in their offices at 722-B Main St., Woodland. To reserve a space in a session, call (530) 661-4200 or email email@example.com. Our next 30 hour training runs from October 1 – November 1 in the evenings with graduation on November 5th..
Advocates must be at least 21 years old. For more information about CASA check out www.yolocasa.org.]]>
