Court Appointed Special Advocate (CASA) volunteers are needed to work with children who are dependents of the court as a result of having been abused, neglected or abandoned. CASA volunteers are sworn officers of the court, appointed by a judge to investigate and report on the best interests of children. Volunteers, who must be 21 years of age, undergo a thorough background and screening process and complete approximately 36 hours of initial training. This is a unique opportunity to work with dedicated professionals, and to help give children a powerful voice in court.
Screening interviews are being held now in preparation for our upcoming training beginning September 23, 2013. Please contact Robyn Roberts at firstname.lastname@example.org or go to our website at www.marinadvocates.org for more information.
