New Advocate Training
We are currently in the process of recruiting for the New CASA Advocate Training. Our National CASA Flex training has proved to be flexible enough for those who have familes and carrers to manage as well. The training is a 5 week course that primarily is done online, so that you can work on training while still maintaining your busy life style!! Once the training is complete and appropriate background checks are in we will have an official swearing in ceremony at the courthouse. We are always in need of new advocates and the children we serve benifit from the time and care that is given. Please call the CASA office at 606-739-2177 to schedule an interview and begin the process of becoming a Court-Appointed Special Advocate for local foster children involved in Boyd County Court. Training will begin on May 8,, 2017, so call today to become a CASA for the children of Boyd County!
