CASA is an amazing organization with staff who are knoweldgeable and willing to provide the type of prevention and or intervention that my schools have needed. When I was on a school campus and leading the Peer Leadership program, CASA staff worked with my students to train them to teach their peers about sexual abuse, sexual harassment and dating violence prevention. The peer leaders were able to speak to their peers about these issues in a manner that would actually get the information across. I was also fortunate to have CASA staff co-facilitate an abuse victim support group on my campus. Now that I am at the district level and coordinating crisis response for the campuses, it has been invaluable to have CASA respond to crisis situations immediately and professionally. Our community is so fortunate to have this agency and all schools need these programs.
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
the ability of my peer leaders to present sensitive information to their peers, my staff to receive the support they need when a crisis occurs, and the training that has been provided to my staff to intervene appropriately
