CASA VOLUNTEER ADVOCATE
Every child deserves a safe home and a loving family. Nobody longs for this more than a child in the foster care system. As a Court Appointed Special Advocate, you are empowered by the courts to help make these dreams become a reality. Through your volunteer advocacy, you will not only bring positive change to the lives of these vulnerable children, but also to the future lives of their children, and to those of generations to come. And in return, you will enrich your own life as well.
 
The CASA volunteer is often the only consistent adult in the life of an abused or neglected child,
helping protect that child's fundamental right to be safe, to be treated with dignity, and to learn and grow in the safe embrace of a loving family. With the preference of the Juvenile Court to recruit and train one volunteer for every case of abuse and neglect that enters the system, Virginia Beach CASA has a big responsibility to train advocates year-round. Do you have what it takes to become an advocate?

FRIENDS OF CASA AMBASSADORS GROUP
Friends of CASA is our ambassadors group, established in November of 2013, to Raise Funding and Awareness for Virginia Beach Court Appointed Special Advocates through educational, social and philanthropic opportunities.

ANNUAL FUNDRAISER EVENT PLANNING COMMITTEE
Each year, in June, we host our annual fundraiser, CASA Cabana. This upscale summer beach party includes a live band, hors d' oeuvres, silent auction, live auction, raffle, and the great company of over 300 people who share your passion for the children that are served by Virginia Beach CASA.

Committee members work together to plan every detail of the event including decorations, evening schedule, securing donations of items for the auctions and raffle, selling tickets, coordinating volunteers, and more. To learn more, contact us at 757-385-5616 or email info@virginiabeachcasa.org.

PINWHEELS FOR PREVENTION CAMPAIGN COMMITTEE
The blue pinwheel has become a national symbol for child abuse prevention; this simple image reminds us that all children deserve a happy, safe childhood. From April 1-30 each year, during Child Abuse Prevention month, Virginia Beach CASA runs a 30-day awareness-raising campaign. During this time, sponsors and donors place special Blue and Silver Pinwheels (provided by Virginia Beach CASA) at locations of choice throughout the community, allowing for a strong and unified message to raise awareness of child abuse within our community and the very important work being done by CASA in Virginia Beach.  

Committee members work together to secure sponsors, distribute pinwheels and plan Pinwheel Palooza, a free and open to the public family event that includes local vendors, child-friendly activities, local entertainment, and a fitness run for children directed by Crossfit Takeover. To learn more, contact us at 757-385-5616 or email info@virginiabeachcasa.org.
 

Virginia Beach CASA strives to provide a program whose volunteer advocates reflect the diversity of the children we serve and our community. It is the policy of Virginia Beach CASA to recruit and select volunteers based upon the knowledge, skills, and abilities required to perform the job. 
 
CASA will consider all applicants for volunteer positions without regard to race, color, age, religion, sex, sexual orientation, disability, marital status, status as a veteran, or national origin.
