Training Dates

Thank you for your interest in volunteering with the Court Appointed Special Advocate (CASA) Program of Montgomery County, Maryland. Pre-service training is an important part of our screening process for prospective volunteers. Topics explored during the pre-service training include information about child abuse and neglect, child development, and the child welfare and court systems.

The roles and responsibilities of a CASA are complex; therefore, it is required that prospective volunteers attend all Pre-Service Training sessions.

If you are interested in attending training, please complete a Volunteer Application and return it to the CASA Program office. After we receive your application, a CASA staff member will call to schedule an interview.

Thank you again for your interest and we look forward to helping you become a powerful voice in a child's life! If you have any questions, please feel free to call us at (301) 340-7458.

Our next pre-service training session will begin in September 2012.
