Be a CASA Ambassador

CASA has many ways for people across the community to get involved helping CASA serve more foster children who need a caring adult to advocate for their best interests. Become a CASA Ambassador and help add the FUN in fundraising. Preparing packets for the Annual CASA kids Superhero 5K and Fun Run in May 2018 are (L-R): Kelly Dun, LaQuista Erinna and Patricia Casey.

Become an ambassador for Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA) within your community.  Learn how to speak about CASA, develop new presentation skills, and network with other people who support the CASA mission. Help CASA speak up for more children and educate our community about the challenges for children in the foster care program across New Jersey.

CASA Ambassadors assist in representing CASA at community events, help increase social media presence, network in the community, and assist with information sessions and other educational events.

For more information please send an email with AMBASSADOR in the subject line to Mauri Tyler.  Training will be provided.
