More than 400 members of the CASA community have already registered to join us for the 2019 Texas CASA Conference: 30 Year Jubilee. Will we see you there?
We only turn 30 once, so we’re making this celebration count! Check out just a few of the things we have in store for you:
Opening Keynote Speaker | Josh Shipp
Statistically, Josh Shipp should be dead, in jail or homeless. But his success as a preeminent author, speaker and global youth empowerment expert is living proof of the power of one caring adult. A former at-risk foster kid turned youth advocate, Josh is renowned for the documentary TV series on A&E that followed his groundbreaking work with youth and families.
Closing Keynote Speaker | Bryan Samuels
Bryan Samuels is the Executive Director of Chapin Hall, a nonprofit research institute focused on improving the well-being of vulnerable children and youth, families, and their communities. His work centers around the creation of a well-being framework based on the best scientific developmental understanding of normal childhood development; understanding the effects of exposure to violence, trauma, poverty and averse childhood experiences on the mental, emotional, behavioral and physical health of children.
