CASA of New Hampshire, a nonprofit that trains volunteer guardians ad litem to advocate for children experiencing abuse and neglect, graduated 144 new advocates in calendar year 2023.
Last year, CASA of NH held virtual, in-person and debuted a new format of training that combined a virtual class with guided study on participants’ own time.
Recruitment remains strong entering 2024, with a full virtual training class of 40 running from January 17 through February 21. Future trainings include a virtual class beginning March 6, and two live, in-person classes in Concord beginning on April 30 and July 10 respectively.
Those interested in volunteering are encouraged to attend a virtual information session, but are welcome to apply at any time. Information sessions are a great way for people to learn more about CASA of NH and what it means to be an advocate, with the chance to ask both staff and a current advocate their questions.
