Become a CASA in 5 Easy Steps
Step 1: Contact CASA Sacramento to RSVP for an Orientation.
Call 916-875-6460, email firstname.lastname@example.org or submit an online inquiry.
Step 2: Attend an Orientation.
Informational orientation sessions are held the second Wednesday of every month, 6:00 – 7:00 pm.
Step 3: Complete a Background Check.
CASA volunteers undergo a thorough background check to ensure that our children are in good hands. Volunteers cannot have a record of certain criminal offenses, like child abuse, neglect, or any sexual offenses. For a complete list of exclusions, go here.
Step 4: Complete CASA Training.
Volunteers must complete an in-class/online hybrid training of 30 hours. This training equips our volunteers with knowledge of child abuse, juvenile law, and court structure. CASA training prepares you to be a strong advocate for our children.
Step 5: Take your Oath Before a Judge.
Congratulations! You’ve become a sworn CASA volunteer. Now you are ready to be appointed to a child who desperately needs your help.
