Volunteer Training Curriculum
Thank you for your interest in being a CASA/GAL volunteer! All volunteer advocates receive at least 30 hours of training before they are assigned a case. Training provides the volunteer with much needed information about the standards for handling a case. Training also is a wonderful opportunity to network with other volunteers, while learning about the needs of children and families in our community.
