STEPS TO BECOMING A CASA
Change a child’s life
CHAT WITH A LOCAL COLORADO PROGRAM.
Contact us via the link below and your local program will reach out to you within three business days to discuss becoming a CASA volunteer.
APPLY and Interview
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 volunteers undergo a thorough background check to ensure that our children are in good hands. Volunteers cannot have a record of certain criminal offenses, like child abuse, neglect, or any sexual offenses.
COMPLETE THE REQUIRED TRAINING.
All volunteers 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 CASA volunteer. Now you are ready to be appointed to a child who desperately needs your help.
