Volunteers are paired with a staff professional supervisor (Child Advocacy Specialist, Early Family Engagement Specialist, or Family Finding Specialist) who supports and guides them every step of the way. This includes preparing for and attending case-related hearings and meetings and guiding the volunteer to pertinent resources specific to each case. When a supervisor is not available for a meeting or hearing, another CASA staff member will attend to support the volunteer.
Check out our Facebook Live conversation with volunteer advocate Shannon and her supervisor Hollie to learn more about how volunteers and supervisors work together.
Learn about speaking up in court and how a supervisor helps prepare volunteers for that presentation in our blog post, A Voice that Trembles is Better than No Voice at All.
