In collaboration with CASA of Northern Connecticut, CASA of Southern Connecticut recently completed training its third cohort of volunteers. Colleagues from CASA of Southwest Connecticut/Child Advocates, along with Yale Law School 3L student Bianca Herlitz-Ferguson (who was a CASA volunteer for five years in New York) joined as guest panelists for the last session. This was the second group trained via the combined online and Zoom format pioneered during the pandemic.
Volunteering to be a Court Appointed Special Advocate (CASA) is therefore an opportunity that one can do from home in the near term, while of course being prepared to meet with children and others directly once public health conditions allow. For information or to apply for our fall training cohort, please contact: info@CASAsouthCT.org
Grateful to our many committed volunteers, we are part of the National CASA/GAL Association for Children and Connecticut CASA Association networks.
