CASA of Carson City is hosting the first hourlong class in a 10-week volunteer training from 6 to 9 p.m. June 21 at its Carson City office, 1539 E. Fifth Street.
CASA volunteers are appointed by the Carson City Juvenile Court to serve as guardian ad litem for a case of abused or neglected children in a child welfare court case. Being a CASA volunteer requires patience, caring, research, writing, speaking and follow-through. A background check, references, application, interview and 30 hours of training are required. CASA volunteers make a difference for very vulnerable children.
