Why Volunteer?

Be a part of something great

Without volunteers to advocate and put their skills to work, CASA would cease to exist. CASA has a variety of volunteer opportunities in which the community can become involved.  Our main need is for volunteers that are willing to devote their time to advocating on behalf of children involved in the court system. We also have volunteers that serve the community through work as interns, office volunteers and board members. Are you looking to positively impact your community? Join us today!

An Advocate is a Voice of a Child

CASA of Bradley & Polk Counties is a non-profit that works with local volunteers to make sure the voices of abused and neglected children are heard. CASA volunteers are everyday citizens appointed by judges to advocate for the safety and well-being of children who have an unstable home situation. These volunteers speak on behalf of a vulnerable child and represent their best interests in court.

The Process of Becoming an Advocate

Each advocate goes through an interview process, background check and is trained using a nationally approved curriculum. The training process covers home visit best practices, insights from child welfare professionals, court observation and much more. Once volunteers have completed their training they are sworn in by a judge and are appointed by the court to advocate on beahalf of children in the community.
