Looking for a meaningful way to make a difference in a child’s life? Become a Court Appointed Special Advocate.
Volunteers with CASA of Pima County are everyday citizens that judges appoint to advocate for the safety and well-being of children who are victims of parental abuse and neglect.
All volunteers must complete a 30-hour pre-service training. The time commitment to a case varies depending upon the stage of the case, but you can expect to spend approximately 15-20 hours a month on a case.
The average case lasts about a year and a half.
No special background or education is required to become a CASA volunteer. Once accepted into the program, training is provided in courtroom procedures, social services, the juvenile justice system, and the special needs of abused and neglected children.

- Complete a minimum of 30 hours of pre-service training
