Description of the Volunteer Opportunity:
Court Appointed Special Advocates are "the eyes and ears of the court." Advocates gather information and interview everyone involved in a foster child's life in order to make recommendations and reports to the presiding judge. These reports and recommendations ensure that a foster child receives all service in order to be safe, have a permanent home and thrive. Advocates are also one of the only consistent and caring adults in a foster child's life during a very difficult time.
Areas of Interest:
Advocacy and Human Rights
Children and Youth
Who Will Be Impacted Through This Project:
CASA speaks for children. The individuals impacted by a volunteer opportunity with Court Appointed Special Advocates are children who are currently in the foster care system.
