You can provide invaluable service to children in your local community by volunteering as a Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA)!
CASA volunteers are everyday heroes from all walks of life who advocate for the well-being of children in foster care by giving them a voice and a chance for a better life.
Being a CASA volunteer allows you to provide service to children close to home! Georgia CASA’s 47 affiliate CASA programs across the state serve 151 of Georgia’s 159 counties.
Volunteers receive a 40-hour, pre-service training, including court observations, along with ongoing supervision by CASA staff once they are sworn-in and assigned to serve children.
Those who have served as CASA volunteers say it is one of the most rewarding services that a person can provide to the community. Oftentimes, the lives of CASA volunteers are changed and impacted as much as the lives of the children they serve.
