CASA of the Continental Divide needs volunteers

The Court Appointed Special Advocates of the Continental Divide is looking for volunteers to help represent children in the judicial system.CASA will be holding a training session in October for new volunteers, which consists of 30 hours of training over five evenings. In addition to the classroom training, volunteers need to complete five court observations, pass a criminal background check and be interviewed.Volunteers are asked to make a 12- to 18-month commitment and can expect to devote about three hours a week of their time to the nonprofit organization, as well as attend monthly volunteer support meetings.CASA covers children in the 5th Judicial District, including Clear Creek, Lake, Summit and Eagle counties. Volunteers typically work with kids whose parents have had abuse or neglect charges filed against them.People interested in volunteering should call Tiffany Grosjean at (970) 513-9390.
