Today, more than 1,000 CASA program offices operate in 49 states. Nearly 70,000 highly trained CASA volunteers (sometimes called guardians ad litem, or GAL volunteers) speak out for 240,000 abused and neglected children in court each year. In this series of interviews we provide updates from National CASA, alert you to legislative action, share experiences from program staff and volunteers in the network, and direct first-person accounts from the youth we serve. In addition, you will learn important staff and volunteer skills to help you advocate for abused and neglected kids.
