You do not have to be a lawyer or a social worker to be a Court Appointed Special Advocate (CASA). We welcome people from all walks of life. We are simply looking for people who care about children. As a volunteer, you will be thoroughly trained and well supported by professional staff to help you through each case.
You must complete an application and interview, pass a background check, participate in a 30-hour pre-service training course and agree to stay with a case until it is closed (a year and a half on average).
The next classes begin in August and will be held at The Children’s Haven, 1083 Marietta Hwy in Canton. You may choose daytime or evening classes.
Daytime classes will be held Tuesdays, 9am- 4pm with a one hour lunch break.
Evening classes will be held Mondays & Wednesdays, 5:30- 8:30pm.
Becoming a CASA volunteer is an investment of time, energy and heart. But as many volunteers have said of the children they worked with: “It wasn’t about what I gave them, it was what they showed me.”
