CASA Volunteers have a requirement of 12 hours of inservice/continuing education hours per year. Each month we are making a huge effort to share new trainings for volunteers that are available in the community. Each training is specific to CASA and the work that we do. Most that we share are on line, but one in October is in person. Below are a few training opportunities for volunteers , staff and board.
