What is a CASA Advocate?

“As a foster child you don't know the face of consistency - because everything is always changing. My CASA Volunteer was the only thing that didn't change... She was the only consistent face I saw and she remains in my life to this day.”

Becoming an Advocate

How can I become a CASA?

Thank you for your interest in the Advocate Training Program.  In order to become a CASA advocate, you must complete approximately 30 hours of training and court observation. Training sessions are held at the discretion of CASA based upon current volunteer needs.


We are not accepting applications at this time.  If you would like to be considered for future training sessions, please join our Network of Hope and we will keep you apprised of future trainings!

Further questions about becoming an advocate can be directed to Kathie Paravola, Chief Program Officer, at kathiep@dupagecasa.org
