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

– Kim,

Become a CASA Volunteer

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 where we discuss what the role of a CASA Advocate is and the time commitment required. RSVP here for the next orientation for training.

  • Friday, April 3 from  12 – 1 p.m. – POSTPONED

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.
