Become a Volunteer Advocate for Children in the Child Welfare System

Thursday, February 11, 2021, 5:30 PM - 8:30 PM

Heart of Missouri CASA speaks up for children who have been abused or neglected by empowering our community to volunteer as advocates for them in the court system. When the state steps in to protect a child’s safety, a judge appoints a trained volunteer advocate to make independent and informed recommendations in the child’s best interest. Volunteer advocates come from every walk of life, yet share a commitment to improving children’s lives, a willingness to learn, and an open mind towards life experiences different from their own. Volunteers complete an interview, a background check, and a 30-hour intensive training program including courtroom observation and are then sworn into their roles by a judge and assigned to a single child or a sibling group.

Training starts January 21, 2021! Zoom training sessions take place Thursday evenings from 5:30-8:30pm from January 21st through February 25th. Online work takes place in-between sessions. CASA is not your typical volunteer opportunity… but we’re not looking for typical volunteers. You can learn more about becoming a volunteer advocate for children by visiting
