VOLUNTEER OPPORTUNITIES –

CASA offers a wide variety of services and programs. Our volunteers are an integral part of all agency operations.

Volunteers who wish to help in a more indirect way may assist with our children’s program, our community education program, and agency assistance.

* Volunteer Confidentiality Agreement

CASA requires that all information gained through service with our organization be treated confidentially. Discussing any information with people who are not volunteers or who are not staff members, in any situation, will destroy the bond of trust between the participant and CASA and will undermine our services.
The location of CASA is confidential and may not be shared with anyone outside the organization.
A breach of confidentiality is a serious violation of trust and ethical responsibility. It can jeopardize the safety of participants, staff and volunteers, and thus may be a cause for immediate dismissal from service. CASA expects all volunteers to not divulge any information during or after their tenure of service with CASA.
