CASA for Children of Monmouth County is seeking individuals who may be interested in becoming a Court Appointed Special Advocate for a child in foster care. Training classes are held two times a year. Advocates attend 30 hours of training before being sworn in by a Family Court Judge, enabling them to carry out case investigations and make recommendations about permanency for the child assigned to them. Additionally, CASA Cafés – seminars and workshops – are offered continually so that Advocates broaden their knowledge conveniently. CASA volunteers make a real difference in a child’s life.
TO BECOME A CASA VOLUNTEER MEANS YOU ARE:
- Willing to commit at least one year of your time
- Able to effectively communicate orally and in writing
- Willing to participate in an in-depth training program
- Able to pass criminal and child abuse registry background checks
- Over age 21
