CASA now offers in-person training

The Capital Area Court Appointed Special Advocate Association, which trains volunteers to speak up for abused and neglected children and youth living in foster care in East Baton Rouge Parish, is again holding in-person training sessions . Virtual trainings also continue.

CASA volunteers advocate for young people to help them reach safe and permanent homes. They do not provide legal representation but replace social workers. A CASA volunteer is an independent voice who speaks only in the best interests of the child. The first step to becoming a volunteer is to attend a 30-minute training session.

Training sessions are held at the CASA office, 848 Louisiana Ave. The timetable is as follows:

  • Tuesday, June 15 — 10 a.m. or 5:30 p.m.
  • Thursday, June 17 — noon
  • Tuesday, June 22 — 10 a.m. or 5:30 p.m.
  • Thursday, June 24 — noon
  • Saturday, June 26 — 10 a.m. or 5:30 p.m.
