I can see the difference having an advocate makes to a child
As a CASA Volunteer, I stay on a case until its conclusion. That means I can actually see the tangible effects that my participation and recommendations have on determining what is best for a child's safety and well being.
Do your research and make sure you're prepared
Make sure you understand the role of a CASA Volunteer, and the emotional impact it is likely to have on you. In order to be an effective advocate for these children, you cannot get too emotionally involved in the dynamics of their lives, or in the challenges of dealing with the bureaucratic legal and social services system.
