SOS CASA of the Flint Hills is pleased to announce the implementation of the Peer Coordinator Project. Currently, national standards for CASA programs allow staff to supervise a limited number of volunteers, based on the number of hours the staff person works per week. The Peer Coordinator Project will allow current, experienced volunteers to apply to serve as peer coaches, or coordinators for new CASA volunteers and each peer coordinator can supervise up to five volunteers. The implementation of this project will allow CASA to expand our volunteer numbers and in turn, drastically increase the number of children we serve without the added expense of additional staff. CASA will begin implementation of this project by selecting two seasoned volunteers after an application process.
What does that mean? SOS CASA of the Flint Hills is now accepting applications for CASA volunteers!
We will host our next pre-service flex learning training class in early November. Anyone 21 years and over interested in making a lifelong difference in the life of an abused or neglected child can apply two to three hours weekly is all it takes to ensure a healthy future for a child. No prior education is required. CASA trains volunteers using our flex curriculum, which incorporates user friendly online components as well as a weekly in-class session. Classes will be scheduled around applicants’ schedules, so get those applications to us! Click HERE for a link to our volunteer application and information packet.
