    Name: Virtual CASA Information Session
    Date: April 21, 2021
    Time: 12:00 PM - 12:45 PM CDT
    Event Description:

    Learn how a CASA (Court Appointed Special Advocate) helps children in foster care build their future while being their voice to advocate for their best interests and help find them their forever home. During this time it is crucial to have a strong voice and caring heart for all youth in foster care who are feeling the effects of not only their personal crisis but now also the public health crisis. CASA of the Coastal Bend serves children from Aransas and Nueces counties in Texas.

    A virtual CASA training class will be offered via Zoom starting September
    10 Hours of zoom training (Click HERE for Dates and Times)
    10 Hours of homework
    10 Hours on-line training - reading manual
    3 Hours of court room observation - recorded zoom or logged in with a Supervisor
    Provide 3-non related references on application

    If you are interested in becoming a CASA, the first step is to attend a Virtual Info Session via Zoom, held every Wednesday at Noon.

    Join us on Zoom for a brief, non-committal 45 minute information session to hear about the roles and requirements of a CASA volunteer. These sessions explain the role of an advocate and the next steps in the application process.

    Every Child Has A Chance It's YOU.

    A few things you should know:
    1. To be a CASA (Court Appointed Special Advocate) you must be 21 years of age or older.
    2. The Information Session and training is online via Zoom however this is not a completely virtual volunteer opportunity. Right now volunteer work is being done virtually but once social distancing is no longer required, volunteers will be required to attend court hearings in person on the case they are appointed to as well as visit their CASA child at least once a month. So preferably you should reside in close proximity to Aransas or Nueces counties in Texas to volunteer with our program.
    3. If you are not within the Aransas/ Nueces county areas, there are hundreds of CASA programs throughout the United States. You can visit this website to search for a program closest to you: https://nationalcasagal.org/our-work/programs/
