CASA volunteers are carefully screened before they attend volunteer training. This includes filling out an application, reference checks, checking the Child Abuse Registry, local criminal background checks and fingerprints. One of our staff members conducts a volunteer interview once a completed application, consent form and signed job description are received. Initial volunteer training consists of thirty five hours of classroom training in our office with staff and ten hours of courtroom observation. Active CASA volunteers must receive an additional twelve hours of on going training each year.
Our next volunteer training class is scheduled to begin in February 2017 in the CASA office at 123 Newnan Street in Carrollton. A completed application and volunteer interview are required before beginning volunteer training. Call 770-838-1964 for more information.
