New Training Announcement!

The Texas CASA staff is thrilled to announce a new training to the CASA network — Strengthening Core Advocacy (SCA): Centering Well Being and Belonging for Children and Parents. This five part module training covers the steps to understand and advocate for children and youth who experience a variety of obstacles because of their ethnicity, gender identity, disability status and more.

The training dives deeper into these important topics and goes beyond the surface of understanding what true belonging looks like. The main exercises you’ll work through include reading about key topics and definitions, exploring the origins of some of your thinking processes, learning about how detrimental disparities can be, discovering real life examples and solidifying your knowledge of the CASA role in all of it.

To help you promote the training to your staff and volunteers, please find three resources linked below to attach to emails when introducing SCA to your team:
