Pike County CASA, a program of Advocacy Network for Children, is rescheduling its accelerated training previously set for May 13 – 15.
Training will now be held Friday, June 10, and Saturday, June 11, from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. and Sunday, June 12, from 1:00 to 5:00 p.m. Training will conclude with court observation and swearing in of volunteers on a date not yet scheduled with the court. Training will be held at the Pike County CASA office located in the Pittsfield United Methodist Church, 222 North Monroe Street in Pittsfield.
CASA volunteers are trained community volunteers appointed by a judge to speak up for abused or neglected children in the court system. Volunteers receive 30 hours of training prior to case assignment. Training includes courtroom procedures, working with social service agencies and the special needs of abused and neglected children. Training is free with training manuals and materials provided. Once trained, CASA volunteers work alongside attorneys and social workers from case inception to its completion. CASA volunteers come from all walks of life and no special experience is required. These trained volunteers will represent abused and neglected children in the Pike County court system.
