WHAT TO EXPECT
CASA volunteers must be 21 years of age, submit to a background check, participate in 30 hours of pre-service training, and provide personal references. CASAs commit to serve for at least a year or until their case has reached permanency.
CASA volunteers are ordinary citizens that do extraordinary work advocating for abused and neglected children. You don’t need a special degree or skills, just a willingness to listen and speak up for the best interests of a child.
The professional staff at CASA of Maury County is here to support you every step of the way.
