Subject: Volunteer Opportunity for Box Elder county students
My name is Jessica Winslow and I oversee the Court Appointed Special Advocate (CASA) program for the First Judicial District, covering Cache, Box Elder and Rich counties. I train CASA volunteers from the community to assist our Guardian ad Litem attorneys on child welfare court cases.
I am emailing because I am currently recruiting advocates in our area, and have found that the opportunity is a great fit for students. Our volunteers undergo a training where they learn about the state child welfare and juvenile court systems, as well as how to act as an advocate for the children that our office represents. They are also invited to attend court proceedings, and will have a great amount of exposure to the courts, DCFS and various community resource agencies.
If you have any students that you feel would be a great fit for this opportunity, please consider referring them to our program. I am always happy to present in any school activity or would be happy to bring up information that can be handed out. Our basic requirements are that they need to be at least 21 years old, able to pass a background check, and able to commit to a year of service.
The next training starts in October, and so now is the perfect time for them to start. They can contact me at this email address (firstname.lastname@example.org) or via phone at 435-232-9151. Please let me know if you have any questions and thank you for your consideration of my request.
