Continuing Education Requirements
Continuing education is an important part of ensuring effective advocacy for our children. National CASA mandates that all active volunteers earn 12 hours of continuing education credits (CEs) per calendar year.
Voices provides training opportunities throughout the year in order to increase the knowledge, skills and abilities of volunteers so they are equipped to fulfill the roles and responsibilities of a CASA volunteer. Voices also informs volunteers of opportunities for continuing education offered throughout the community.

Cardinal Glennon Fostering Healthy Children
Children placed in the foster care system are among the most vulnerable members of our society. As pediatric healthcare specialists, we agree with the American of Pediatrics that all children should have access to “continuous, comprehensive, coordinated, compassionate and culturally sensitive primary care.” As a medical provider and resource to state agencies, community coalitions, kinship, foster and biological parents, we seek to improve the health and well-being outcomes of children (birth – 12 years of age) in foster care.
Come learn how Fostering Healthy Children can benefit the child(ren) you are advocating for.
