CASA Volunteer Training Starts Soon

Registration is open for our Court Appointed Special Advocate (CASA) Volunteer Training Program, which begins June 5, 2018.

CASA volunteers serve as the voice of children who are in foster care or involved in the family court system. They meet regularly with the child and speak on behalf of the child during critical meetings and legal hearings. A CASA representative often is the only consistent adult in a child’s life.

Our CASA training program concludes with an official swearing-in ceremony by a Livingston County Family Court judge. This specialized training is held just twice a year.

The CASA Spring Volunteer Training Program begins on June 5 and ends on June 28 (see full schedule below). All training sessions are held at LACASA Center in Howell.

The preferred registration deadline is Wednesday, May 23, 2018.

For additional information, or to register, contact our CASA Program Manager at 517-548-1350 or email casa@lacasacenter.org.
