Child Advocates Needed!

Change a Child’s Story

Many Children are still in need of a CASA. Please Make A Difference and consider becoming a CASA Volunteer advocating for children in the 5th Judicial District.

CASA volunteers work for the Judge and are a sworn “friend” of the court.

CASA volunteers stay on the case until closed, which typically takes 18 months. Once appointed to a case, CASA volunteers dedicate approximately 15- 20 hours a month to a case. They are expected to complete 12 hours of continuing education annually and participate in monthly supervision/case management meetings with program staff.

CASA volunteer qualifications:

  • 21 years old, mature and responsible
  • Submit to routine background checks
  • Participate in an interview
  • Complete a 35-hour pre-service training
  • Have average computer skills, own a personal computer and have access to the internet

CASA of the Continental Divide offers pre-service volunteer trainings every other month. In this 7-week semi-independent volunteer training curriculum, students complete 5 self-guided sessions and participate in 4 – 3 hour in-person volunteer training sessions. The in-person volunteer training sessions reinforce concepts learned by completing the self-guided sessions. In addition to the pre-service volunteer training, students observe at least 2 courtroom proceedings and participate in the Colorado Mandatory Reporter training.
