Volunteer Training

SFCASA holds training cycles each year. Training takes place in the evening; most sessions are from 6-9pm.  Volunteers also attend a Court Panel Presentation and Court Observation at the court house.

The cycle training cycle lasts six weeks and consists of a total 40 hours.

In order to become a CASA, volunteers must complete all 40 hours of training. Missed classes may be made up in the following training cycle.

The final class takes place at the court house, where volunteers are officially sworn in as CASAs!
