Volunteer Your Time to Change a Child’s Story

Having a caring, consistent adult to listen and put a child’s best interests before all others’ can make all the difference.

CASA Volunteers are there to change lives at the most challenging time in a child’s life, and they do. Multiple studies have shown that children who have experienced abuse or neglect fare better with a CASA Volunteer by their side.

CASA Volunteers are everyday people that advocate for the safety and well-being of children and youth experiencing abuse and neglect.

You do not need a social work background or legal expertise to be a CASA Volunteer, but you do need to be committed. We require that you are 21 or older, and a background check cannot include violent and/or sexual crimes.

Older Youth Program

As CASA youth look towards life after the foster system, the transition can be difficult. Navigating the foster system can be overwhelming for any youth and child, but making the transition to adulthood can be particularly challenging. In response, Denver CASA’s Older Youth program was created to support any goal-oriented youth between 14-21 years old that have had some interaction with the foster system. We strongly believe in meeting youth where they are, and working with them to gain the skills and confidence they need to transition to adult life.

Older Youth mentors are in a great position to provide valuable mentorship to older youth Mentors understand the importance of providing guidance and advice – especially in the complicated and confusing world of supportive services. By encouraging Older Youth to develop the skills needed to make the transition out of the foster system, our mentors can play a key role in promoting better outcomes throughout adulthood.
