CASA volunteers are citizens who want to help their community's children. They work alongside attorneys, social workers, treatment providers, and other professionals to advocate for the child. When a CASA is appointed to a child's case, he or she is responsible for taking time to find out as much as possible about the child and the child's circumstances. CASA volunteers search for information. They review records, get to know the parents, talk to teachers, neighbors, and most important - the child. The CASA volunteer then appears in court to recommend to the judge what is best for the child's future. Volunteers are appointed to advocate for children in the Arlington and Alexandria juvenile courts.
No special experience is required. Volunteers are selected on the basis of their objectivity, competence, and commitment. All CASA volunteers must complete a 32 hour training program and background checks.
Bilingual (Spanish/English), multi-cultural and male volunteers are greatly needed!
