Interested in becoming a CASA volunteer?

CASAs (Court Appointed Special Advocates) are volunteers and ordinary citizens, like you, doing extraordinary work. CASA volunteers establish stable relationships with foster children, getting to know their unique history and making informed recommendations to the courts.

Look to see which local CASA programs are in your area. You can choose which program is most convenient for you. With 44 programs serving 49 counties, we’re sure you’ll find something close by.

Contact your local program. Your local program will interview you in person and ask you to fill out an application. You will also be asked for 3 references to guarantee that you are a person of character, competence, and reliability.

Complete a background check. CASA advocates undergo a thorough background check that includes fingerprinting to ensure that our children are in good hands. Advocates cannot have a record of certain criminal offenses, like child abuse, neglect, or any sexual offenses.

Complete the required training. All advocates must complete an initial training of at least 30 hours. This training prepares you to be a strong advocate and covers legally mandated topics. You’ll learn about the dynamics of child abuse and juvenile law and court structure.

Take your oath before the judge. That’s it! You’ve become a sworn advocate. Now you are ready to be appointed to a child who desperately needs your help. Take a look at our Stories from the Field to see how these CASAs dramatically impacted the lives of their CASA children.

We’ve also compiled a list of FAQs about becoming a CASA to help you navigate this rewarding and challenging opportunity. If you don’t find your questions answered, feel free to contact a CASA program near you for further information.
