PURPOSE AND USE OF APPLICATION INFORMATION:
Thank you for your interest in becoming a volunteer advocate with the Wayne County CASA program! Our CASA volunteers function under the same expectations as paid staff in terms of work attendance, dependability, adherence to established program procedures and compliance with professional standards of conduct. In turn, CASA volunteers are assigned meaningful work. Acting as a CASA volunteer is a very rewarding and impactful experience! The questions in this application are asked for the purpose of preliminarily assessing your qualifications as a CASA volunteer.
As an applicant, your name, job history, education, training, and work availability are public information. All other information will remain private. As a volunteer, your name, job title, job description, dates of volunteering, work location, work telephone number, and time sheets can be made public. All other data about you remains private and will not be shared without your written permission. The program will reject any applicant found to have been convicted of, or having charges pending for a felony or misdemeanor involving sex offense, child abuse or neglect, or related acts that would pose risks to children or the CASA program’s credibility. In addition, the Wayne County CASA program may terminate or discharge a volunteer from the training, specific case, or the program, at any time.
Wayne County CASA is committed to providing equal opportunity for all volunteers and prospective volunteers. No individual will be rejected because of culture, disability, ethnicity, gender identity, gender expression, marital status, national origin, race, or sexual orientation.
