We are looking for a Director of Volunteer Recruitment & Retention (DVRR) who can lead CASA of Travis County in identifying and institutionalizing best practices and developing innovative practices related to volunteer recruitment, engagement, and retention, including creation of the annual Volunteer Recruitment and Retention Plan.
CASA of Travis County believes every child who's experienced abuse or neglect deserves to have a dedicated advocate speaking up for their best interest in court, at school, and in our community. To accomplish this, the team at CASA educates and empowers diverse community volunteers who ensure each child's needs remain a priority in an overburdened child welfare system. Through inclusive, honorable and respectful involvement with families, courts and all parties, CASA makes independent and educated recommendations that prioritize children’s safety and, wherever possible, preserve connections to their families.
