Because every child needs someone who cares...  because

Because every child needs someone who cares...
"If it weren't for you, school would have been harder. If it weren't for you I would not have started school with new clothing. If it weren't for you, I would not have had a wonderful senior year. If it weren't for you, I wouldn't be me. Thank you." Written by a CASA youth
Studies have shown that involvement of a positive role model in the lives of children has profound effects on them. Being a CASA volunteer doesn't mean you have to be a replacement parent or a superhero. It means being someone who cares and shows up. 

CASA volunteers are everyday people, trained by CASA and then appointed by Judges to advocate for the safety of children who have been removed from their homes because of abuse or neglect. Volunteers are fully supported by a staff case supervisor and are part of a team that works in the best interests of the child.

If you can commit to spending 2 - 4 hours a week offering advocacy, friendship and emotional support to a child or young adult in foster care, WE NEED YOU! 

We currently have 40 children in our waitlist to be matched with their CASA volunteer.
Next training to become a CASA 
begins July 20th

Call them at 707-565-6375 
or email us at info@sonomacasa.org 
for more information and to sign up.

 Youth Volunteer Scholarship Opportunity  youth
CONCAUSA International Meeting

CONCAUSA is an initiative organized by América Solidaria, with the support of ECLAC and UNICEF. Its purpose is to mobilize youth across the Americas to present the work they are doing volunteering in their communities on projects that address the SDGs in some way. They want to connect them to a broader network, encourage them to think bigger in their projects, and begin to identify themselves as the generation with the capacity to end poverty on the American continent. Through CONCAUSA we call on young people in Latin America and the U.S. to meet other young people and learn about their initiatives.  

This year they want more youth from the U.S to participate and showcase their projects in their communities.

Youth (ages 15-17) apply through video proposals in groups of 3 describing their service projects; the top 15 groups will be selected to participate in the CONCAUSA Meeting to be held in Santiago, Chile, on November 24- December 1, 2017. America Solidaria covers all costs for the trip for the 3 youths plus 1 teacher/chaperone.
