Longtime CASA Volunteer and former Speech Language Pathologist and Special Education Coordinator, Georgia Magnera, has significant experience in this field and is willing to answer questions and provide support to CASAs as they advocate around the educational needs of the youth they serve.

Transporting Kids -

If you are or plan to your appointed kids, we need to collect a photocopy of your valid driver's license and current auto insurance. Please reach out to your Advocate Supervisor if there are any changes to your license/insurance.

CEU Reminder -

As a CASA you are required to complete 12 Continuing Education Units (CEUs) per calendar year, starting 12 months after your initial CASA training. Additionally, you are required to complete 1 hour related to diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI). You can find a list of suggested CEU’s under the Continuing Education tab. To get credit for an activity simply notify your staff supervisor.

Contact Logs -

Just a friendly reminder to stay on top of your contact logs in Optima. Your supervisor can provide you with real-time support and resources with more information.

"As a CASA, you make a meaningful difference in a child's life - a child that doesn't have many people looking out for them."

"Every child deserves a safe environment to grow up in, including a roof over their head, nutritious food in the belly, and an opportunity for education. I'm happy to be a part of the process by being a caring adult who can help a child receive those things."

Quote Icon

"There is nothing like the feeling of earning a hug from a child who is generally suspicious of everybody. It's amazing what your calm, regular, and reliable presence can do for a child in need. This is one of the most rewarding volunteer opportunities out there!"
