Have you ever wondered why CASA is important, what impact CASA has on the community, or what difference you can make as a CASA volunteer advocate? Well, we have an answer to all of your questions, and more!
On June 3rd at 6 p.m, CASA of CGS—a non-profit that matches caring adults to abused and neglected children to speak up for their best interests in court, schools, and the community—will be hosting an online information session on their Facebook page that will give you a peak into the world of CASA. The event will serve as both an overview of the organization and a guide to becoming an advocate in the CASA of CGS network.
“The upcoming info session is a great opportunity for anyone interested in learning more about our program from the safety of their homes,” says Julia Frank, CASA of CGS Volunteer Coordinator. “During these uncertain times we want everyone to know that we are still accepting volunteers to serve our foster youth.”
The information session will be posted in the “Events” section of their Facebook page, but the actual information session will take place in the discussion section of the event. Topics will range from success stories to statistics and outcomes to information on upcoming online training courses and dates. They will discuss why CASA is important, and talk about their volunteers and the difference they make (and you can make too) in their communities and in the lives of the children they serve.
The range of discussion topics will be posted at scheduled times throughout the event and will remain there indefinitely, allowing people to refer back to the information at their convenience and share it within their own networks on social media.
“I hope this info session will help someone take the next steps towards becoming a CASA,” continues Julia. “There is no time like the present!”
The work that CASA of CGS staff and volunteers contribute to both our network at Hopeloft and our community at large is invaluable. If you are interested in learning more about CASA and the amazing work they do in our community, please join them on June 3rd! We hope to see you there!
