CASA of Alameda County Youth Speakers Bureau
By John Anyosa
Recruiting ex-foster youth to earn and promote CASA services
SAN LEANDRO, Calif.
-- Former foster youth, who have previously had a Court Appointed Special Advocate (CASA), are invited to join CASA of Alameda County’s new Youth Speakers Bureau and have the opportunity to be paid while engaging community members about our mission and sharing their own experiences.
Ideally, applicants (aged 18+) will have had a CASA in Alameda County but we will work with and accept applications from youth who have had Advocates in other counties.
Successful applicants will receive training in public speaking and story-telling, help new Advocates, be able to raise funds at community events, help recruit new CASA volunteers and, potentially, be involved with media.
A recruitment event will be held on February 28, 2012 from 6 p.m. until 9 p.m. at CASA of Alameda County (Court Appointed Special Advocates), 1000 San Leandro Boulevard, Ste. 300, San Leandro. The location is within walking distance of San Leandro BART.
For more information, contact John Anyosa, CASA of Alameda County, at (510) 618-1964 or firstname.lastname@example.org
