CASA/GAL of Miami County trains new volunteers twice a year, during spring and fall. Each new volunteer is required to go through a thorough screening process comprising written application, three references, personal interview with the program staff and background check.
The thirty-hour training is mandatory for all volunteers before they can be sworn in as a CASA. The training is administered at our office in Troy by our staff and community guest speakers. To accommodate all volunteers, including those who work full-time, the training is offered in the evenings and on the weekends.
We ask for a minimum of two-year commitment from our volunteers because very often a CASA is the only stable person in the life of an abused/neglected child, who has been through many temporary homes, caregivers and caseworkers.
To learn more about the roles and responsibilities of a CASA/GAL please read our frequently asked questions and job description of CASA volunteers.
