About the event

About the Training:

The Louisiana CASA Association is pleased to announce a new opportunity for local program staff that will be facilitating new volunteer 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. 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.

The Training of Facilitators will focus on the methods of delivering the National CASA Training Curriculum. We will include learning best practices for delivery environments. Over the course of two days, participants will grow their skills as training professionals as they learn and practice the methods required to build volunteer competencies. There is no cost to attend, but registration is required by May 8, 2024. In advance of the TOF, participants must thoroughly review and have participated in at least one version of the pre-service curricula. Attendance at both sessions is required to successfully complete the training. In addition to traditional “classroom” learning, participants will have the opportunity to practice their skills through peer-led facilitated activities.

Lodging and Meals:

For participants in need of lodging, Louisiana CASA has reserved 20 rooms at the TownePlace Suites in Monroe. Rooms are available at a first come, first serve basis. 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.
