You do not have to be a lawyer or social worker to be a volunteer. We welcome people from all walks of life. We are simply looking for individuals who care about children and have common sense. As a volunteer, you will be thoroughly trained and well supported by professional staff to help you through each case.
Steps to become a volunteer
You must fill out the volunteer application. You also have to pass a background check, participate in a 30 hour pre-service training course and agree to stay with a case until it is closed (a year and a half on average). Please call with any additional questions.
If you feel like you are ready to commit to a 30 hour training program and a child’s case then become a volunteer. Please download the Volunteer Application, fill it out and send it to Lyon County CASA, PO Box 242, Yerington, NV 89447.
Becoming a CASA volunteer is an investment of time, energy and heart. But as many volunteers have said of the children they worked with: “It wasn’t about what I gave them, it was what they showed me.”
