Each Court Appointed Special Advocate completes extensive training prior to being assigned to a case and continues training as long as he/she is an active CASA.
Each person has been sworn in by the court and is specifically assigned to designated children in need of advocacy. Advocates make a commitment of twelve to eighteen months or according to the circumstances of each case.
Training is held in our Visalia office during the weeks listed below on Tuesday and Thursday evenings from 5:30PM to 8:30PM.
Prior to attending the following training sessions, volunteers must attend orientation.
Orientations are held weekly on Mondays at 5:30PM and Thursdays at 12:00PM
