Educational Advocacy Resources for Back-to-School Season

It’s that time again, when children and youth start heading back to school! Make sure you’re prepared to advocate for your CASA child with the updated Educational Advocacy Guidebook and Educational Advocacy Pocket Guide. Both resources offer tools and tips for speaking up for the educational needs of your CASA child.

The Educational Advocacy Guidebook is designed to provide CASA volunteers with the knowledge and tools needed to identify education-related challenges experienced by the children they serve and to advocate effectively to overcome them. It examines how the school and child welfare systems intersect and provides advocates with the information and tools to help them make a difference in their CASA child’s education.

The tri-fold Educational Advocacy Pocket Guide fits conveniently in a wallet and provides volunteers a quick and handy resource.

Both the Guidebook and the Pocket Guide are available on the Educational Advocacy Resources page in the Texas CASA Learning Center.
