Becoming a CASA Volunteer

The summer CASA class of 2015 pose with Judge Tari L. Cody after she administered the Oath on August 10, 2015.

To be eligible to become a sworn officer of the Court, each CASA must successfully complete 30 hours of training and thereafter complete 12 hours of In-Service training annually. The curriculum has been created by National CASA and California CASA and covers such topics as: laws relating to child welfare and foster care, child development and family dynamics, child abuse and neglect and mandated reporting, effective advocacy, and other matters affecting juvenile dependency.

Schedule below is subject to change. For more information on becoming a CASA, please contact info@casaofventuracounty.org or call (805) 389-3120.
