We are here to help! CASA Project Worcester County has a variety of options to help your company reach its social responsibility goals, all while making a difference in the lives of children in the foster care system.

Through workplace giving programs, you give staff members the chance to make a considerable impact. Partner with CASA and you can:

  • Make a difference in the lives of Worcester County’s most vulnerable children
  • Create a culture of generosity
  • Engage employees in their communities
  • Communicate your core values to your staff

Company volunteering

Becoming a Court Appointed Special Advocate is a premier volunteer opportunity. Your employees will learn unique skills and will gain personal development tools while working as a CASA Volunteer, which will directly support their personal and professional leadership path within your organization. Problem solving, meeting facilitation, cultural adeptness, patience, and conflict resolution are some of the skills your employees will utilize as CASA Volunteers.

Where to begin with volunteer engagement:
  • Promote – Place information about becoming a CASA Volunteer into your corporate employee engagement newsletter or blog.
  • Present – Host a lunch-and-learn for your staff. We will come out and give a brief presentation on CASA and the process for becoming a volunteer.
  • Adopt – Become one of our premier partners and consider co-branding opportunities in the media, sponsor initiatives, leadership track trainings, board opportunities, etc.
  • Act – If you would like to know more about this opportunity for your organization, please contact Julie Bowditch, Executive Director, at jbowditch@thecasaproject.org.
