I was a CASA for 7 years and advocated for two young men. I'm still mentoring one of them who turned 20 recently and has been out of the court system for a couple of years. I see him weekly. CASA is critical for these young persons who generally, for no fault of their own, find themselves alone in the world without caring parents. Social workers don't have enough time or energy to adequately serve the use they are assigned, and in one of my cases made errors or judgement which I had to address with the court. The CASA team is very supportive of volunteers and provides training support to make them successful. I recommend CASA to my friends who are looking for volunteer opportunities for youth. I'm 74 and just not able to take on a new young person but do enjoy working weekly with the young man whose CASA I was for 7 years.
