The ProKids Building Blocks program provides specialized training for CASA volunteers who work with children ages birth through 5 years old. Building Blocks CASA Volunteers receive additional training in assessment of child development, caregiver/child interaction, trauma, medical care, the law, resources and services.
CASA volunteers are asked to complete the required training within a year of being assigned a Building Blocks case.
Training will be presented by the ProKids Building Blocks Program Manager. In addition to presenting training like this, the Program Manager is available to consult on cases involving children ages birth through 5 years old. Along with your CASA Manager, the Program Manager can assist you in accessing information and resources.
This is a recurring course. If you have already participated, you are welcome to come again – as some of the material has been updated – but you do not need to attend a second time.
“This training has been partially funded through a contract between Ohio CASA and the Department of Job and Family Services. Ohio CASA supports local CASA/GAL programs throughout Ohio with training, technical assistance, legislative support, and standards implementation so volunteers may advocate for abused, neglected and dependent children in the court system.”
