Other Volunteer Opportunities

CASA and guardian ad litem volunteers advocate work directly with abused and neglected children and the people in their lives: foster parents, social workers, attorneys, teachers, medical providers and others. In addition to training and supporting advocate volunteers, most CASA/GAL programs benefit from the invaluable contributions of non-advocate volunteers.

There are a number of ways you can contribute your time and talents to your local CASA/GAL program, including those listed below. Please contact your local CASA or GAL program to inquire about their needs for volunteer support.

Ways that you may be able to support your local CASA or GAL program:

  • Writing/layout/editing/publication/distribution of the program's newsletter
  • Designing a website, or maintaining current information on a program website
  • Recruiting volunteers: public speaking, staffing tables at events, talking to friends
  • Hanging CASA posters in your community
  • Providing data entry on a regular basis
  • Inviting CASA staff to present a program to their community or civic group, recruiting volunteers, requesting a donation, etc.
  • Getting CASA information out in their workplace via e-newsletter, posters, brochures in pay envelopes, etc.
  • Organizing a fundraiser or contacting businesses for in-kind donations: food, prizes in connection with a special event or for volunteer recognition, office supplies, etc.
  • Presenting an in-service training workshop on a topic about which you have professional expertise
  • Making your home, workplace or other facility available to the CASA program for training, volunteer recognition, special events, etc.
