Congratulations to our 4 newest CASA Volunteers! They were sworn in as officers of the court last Thursday by Juvenile Court Judge Shearer in front of an audience or supportive families and friends. Thank you to everyone that came to celebrate their graduation from training and we wish these new advocates the best of luck as they begin speaking up for a child in need!
Children First is now recruiting community volunteers interested in being legal advocates for abused and neglected children in our community. We will be holding our Fall 2010 CASA Training Session during the month of September. As a Court Appointed Special Advocate (CASA), you speak for a child who's been neglected, abused, ignored, and has now entered the child welfare system.
You'll be trained. You'll have a cause. With a first and last name.
CASA volunteers are community members just like you. Ordinary people doing the extraordinary. To find out more, click here.
February training for Athens-Oconee CASA volunteers begins today. We have a talented and diverse group of 14 individuals for this session, including lawyers, students, parents, grandparents, and teachers. Athens-Oconee CASA is really excited to be working with these trainees. They will attend sessions throughout the month of February and be sworn in as officers of the Juvenile Court in March. These trainees are on the path to become powerful advocates for abused and neglected children in our community.
