Court-Appointed Special Advocate

Training & Orientation Schedule

Perhaps the most time consuming part of becoming a CASA Volunteer is the very beginning stages of your involvement with CASA. Training consists of a total of 40 hours spread out over the course of 5-weeks. The training can be incredibly informative and packed with the foundational tools necessary to begin your advocacy. Some times, it has so much information that time sweeps by so quickly, and before you know it, you're swearing-in and beginning your journey with a youth appointed to you! 

Before going into training, however, it's important that you attend a quick orientation. This time with a CASA Training Coordinator is important because we discuss what expectations are for you as you begin this journey, discuss requirements to be able to swear-in to the court system, and gauge the highly emotional and confidential experiences you may encounter as a CASA Volunteer.


Orientations are scheduled weekly for "walk-in's" but our Outreach/Training Coordinators will also work with your schedule. If you're unable to attend one of the walk-in orientations listed below, please don't hesitate to contact the office location that best suits you and schedule an orientation at a time that works for you!
