Online Core Advocacy Skills Training (OCAST) Demonstrates the Foster Care Process

Texas CASA created an interactive e-learning course, Online Core Advocacy Skills Training (OCAST), to illustrate everything that happens when a child comes to the attention of CPS. The course contains six modules, which each take one to two hours to complete. This course is recommended for all CASA staff, volunteers, board members and other stakeholders to help them form a deeper understanding of the foster care process and the role of the CASA volunteer.
