VOLUNTEERS/INTERNSHIP PROGRAM

CASA/Family Systems Volunteer Program is an opportunity for interested members of the community to assist with the mission and vision of our organization. Due to the highly confidential and personal nature of our service all interested persons will be subject to a thorough background check.

Sisters volunteering together

Internships are available to individuals who have been cleared by their college or university program of study. Due to the high volume of interest in this area, we are only able to select a couple of individuals per year. Your chances of being chosen by one of our program managers will be greater if (1) you have completed our Annual Training; (2) you successfully pass your background check; and (3) submit recommendations from your University or College program area. This is not a guarantee but it will increase your chances.

It is highly recommended interested persons keep abreast of our Annual Training scheduled throughout the year.
