About the event
About the Training:
Volunteers are the lifeblood of CASA programs and the foundation of the National CASA/GAL Association’s CASA programs’ core model for advocacy. One of the greatest impacts you will have in preparing your volunteers for this vital and challenging work is through pre-service training.
CASA training facilitators can prepare to lead new volunteer training by attending a training of facilitators session. Louisiana CASA is dedicated to ensuring that each program has access to relevant adult learning and skills-based facilitator training in order to maximize your volunteers’ learning and preparation, which will, ultimately, improve the outcomes of the children you serve.
Lodging and Meals:
For participants in need of lodging, Louisiana CASA has reserved 15 rooms at Best Western Plus in Lake Charles. Rooms are avialable at a first come, first serve basis. Programs with multiple staff attending the training are encouraged to occupy two attendees per room. When you register, there will be a question to indicate if you need a hotel room. If yes, Ms. Wanda will book your room. Breakfast will be provided by the hotel.
