Become a CASA Volunteer…

There are 3 steps:

  1. Complete the online application.
  2. Pass a background check.
  3. Complete a training course.

The course is offered four or more times each year, provides an overview of CASA Volunteer roles and responsibilities, and includes the following topics:

  • Child Protection: CASA, the Courts, and the Worcester County Dept. of Children and Families
  • Introduction to the needs of the children we serve
  • Case building – interviewing and investigation techniques, report writing, and understanding the children we serve
  • Panel discussion with experienced CASA Volunteers

Upon completion of the training course, you will receive your first case assignment. A staff case manager will assist you, guide you, and provide any resources you need.

Administrative assistance is provided by the CASA office.

The average time commitment for a CASA Volunteer is 6-8 hours per month. We ask that volunteers commit to the case until it is closed. A typical case lasts 9-15 months.
