2nd Annual CASA/G-AL Volunteer’s Day - Join Us on June 6th

Join us June 6th to celebrate the dedication and resilience of CASA/GAL volunteers whose tireless work ensures children and youth in the child welfare system have their voices heard every day.

To honor and thank these volunteers, the National CASA/GAL Association for Children and Unbelievably Resilient (formerly FosterStrong) will co-host a hybrid event, livestreamed from the 2022 Annual Conference, on June 6 at 4-4:30 pm PT | 7-7:30pm ET. These festivities will elevate the voices of youth with lived experience who benefitted from having a CASA/GAL volunteer advocate by featuring inspiring testimonials from 2020-2022 Akerman Scholarship recipients. All volunteers, Board members, national, state and local program staff, partners, donors and friends of the CASA/GAL movement are invited to participate.

The same day, U.S. Senators Sherrod Brown (OH) and Todd Young (IN), and U.S. Representative Katie Porter (CA) will recognize CASA/GAL Volunteer’s Day as sponsors of Senate and House resolutions before members of Congress.
