CASA Child Advocate Training - Feb. 25-Apr. 8

Court Appointed Special Advocates, or CASA volunteers, change the lives of abused and neglected children by representing their best interests in court. CASA volunteers monitor the child's health and education, help identify the best interests of the child, submit recommendations to the court, and are sworn officers of the court. CASA urgently needs community members like you to become child advocates, as children are on a waitlist. Applications are being accepted for the upcoming training, which will be from 5:30-8:30 p.m. on Tues. and Thurs. from Feb. 25 to April 8. Applications are due prior to session start. Child advocates must be 21 and have reliable transportation and daytime flexibility. The average time commitment is 10-15 hours a month. Please contact Kelli Shannon at or (812) 333-2272 ext. 11. (
