SOS CASA of the Flint Hills is pleased to announce the Summer 2013 Pre-Service training class for new Court Appointed Special Advocate (CASA) volunteers will begin on July 25th, 2013 and will utilize a blended training curriculum. This 5 week curriculum includes a once a week in-person class session, and a once a week online class session at the volunteer’s leisure.
CASA volunteers uncover facts for the court in child abuse and neglect cases, develop a special relationship with the child and family, and make recommendations to the court in the child’s best interests. CASA is now accepting applications for volunteers to join the CASA team and embark on a journey to advocate for the best interests of abused and neglected children in our community. Applicants must be 21 years or older, be able to commit to 2 years with the program, and care about the well being of children. For more information, contact CASA at 620-343-2744 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
