Program Spotlight: Animation from Nebraska CASA

The Tale of the CASA Volunteer Earlier this year, many in the CASA network enjoyed an animation produced for Nebraska CASA. It was shared by more than a few local and state programs on social media. This animation explained what a CASA volunteer does, and it told the CASA story in a fun and clear way.

National CASA communications staff asked the creator, Dean Kielty, to create a version for national use. We soon discovered that Dean is the son of Corrie Kielty, Executive Director of Nebraska CASA

View the video and read an interview with both Dean and Corrie about the process of creating it.

This National CASA spotlight is the next in a series of articles generated by National CASA regional program officers. This month’s author is Paige Beard, who serves the West Central Region. In future months, we’ll be sharing information about program innovations and best practices from around the network. If you have news to share, please contact your RPO or email the National CASA Communications Department.
