When you work with CASA of Ohio Valley, we’ll make sure you’re well-prepared for your first case. We offer training courses and continuing education programs to equip you with the skills you need to be an advocate for a vulnerable child. Call today to find out if our program is right for you.
Who’s eligible to become a volunteer advocate?
We accept volunteers from all walks of life. If you don’t have the time to be an advocate, we have other ways you can help. To become a volunteer advocate, you must:
- Pass a background check
- Agree to stay with a case until it closes
- Finish a 30-hour pre-service training course
Cases typically last as long as a year and a half. During that time, you’ll interview the child, family members and anyone else involved with the child’s life. You’ll also attend court proceedings and testify about your findings, if necessary.
