Volunteer Schedule

In August 2017, the WCCASA staff will host another round of training for a group of interested advocates. Interest has been high, and we’re excited for this new session.

Training begins on August 16th, and each session is from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. The  volunteers who complete the 30-hour classroom requirements and mandatory court observation will be sworn in by Judge Guffee on August 25th in the Juvenile Court.

Though nearly full, there are a couple spots left in this June class. Training is by invitation only, please submit an application to be considered. To be considered for a future class contact the Executive Director, Marianne Schroer, at Marianne@WilliamsonCountyCASA.org.
