“Being a CASA Volunteer Advocate means that I can play an active role in helping a child in need.”

Become a CASA Advocate

Thank you so much for your interest in becoming a volunteer with CASA of Collin County! Our process to become an advocate is the following:

1. Attend a Volunteer Orientation

Our volunteer orientation is an hour- long presentation at our office (101 East Davis Street Mckinney, TX 75069) where we chat about what the role of a CASA Advocate is and the time commitment required. Below are the dates for orientations for the Summer training class:

  • Tuesday, June 5th from 4-5 pm
  • Monday, June 11th, 9-10 am
  • Wednesday, June 20th from 1-2pm

2. Complete the Online Application

Once you attend the orientation, you will be given the link to complete our online application. 

3. Come in for a Personal Interview

Once we receive your application, a CASA Staff member will reach out to you about conducting a personal interview. The interview will  take place at our office and normally lasts about an hour. Please bring a copy of your driver’s license, current car insurance and either passport or social security card as we need to make a copy. 

4. Wait for Acceptance into Our Pre-Service Training Class

After the interview, you will hear from CASA of Collin County about acceptance into the next training class. 

Upcoming Pre-Service Training Dates

*Please note that the training consists  of on-site training at our office, 6 hours of homework, including 2 hours of court observation. To become a CASA, you must attend ALL training sessions, complete the homework, and successfully pass all background checks.
