Training event brings together volunteers and area judges

Recently, Northeastern Indiana Casa staff and volunteers gathered for a specialized training at the Kendallville Library. Topics covered during the day centered around what to do and what not to do as a CASA. The day featured a panel discussion which included area judges and a discussion on working a case study. 

The event was facilitated by Jackie Boyle who volunteers as a CASA, serving for more than a year in Noble County. (Read more about Jackie's volunteer story here)

Training is an important part of preparing a volunteer to be better equipped for their role. Community members who are interested in getting involved with Northeastern Indiana CASA should not feel as if previous experience is needed. Fall Training is happening soon and those who want to join as a volunteer should complete an application soon!
