We are excited to showcase a new feature in Inside CASA, Recruitment Bounty: A Treasure Trove of Tips, which will be included in the first edition each month. This section includes ideas and tips related to recruitment and awareness to help spark creativity and grow your skills. We encourage you to take these and see how you can implement them in a way that works for your program. We hope you enjoy and here’s our first one:
Potential CASA volunteers are not only looking to help children and families, they are also looking for a community. Show off the connection between your staff and volunteers by hosting a live event on Facebook, LinkedIn, or Instagram. Invite staff and volunteers to talk about their role and the work of a CASA volunteer. Be sure to have your current volunteers share the event on their social channels and via email for free word-of-mouth advertising. Check out this example by Georgia CASA.
