April 13 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm
CASA Volunteers who work with children in this particular age group are asked to complete this training within a year of taking their case.
Training will be presented by the Launch Program Manager. In addition to presenting training like this, the Launch Program Manager is available to consult on cases involving youth 14 and up. Along with your CASA Manager, the Launch 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.
EXPECTATIONS WHILE ATTENDING A PROKIDS TRAINING
When you attend a ProKids Training, you’ll be learning alongside other community members preparing to advocate for children experiencing one of, if not the most, chaotic times of their life. We take this work extremely seriously. Because of that, we have the following expectations for every ProKids Training participant:
• We promote a safe learning environment free of harassment, discrimination, and violence. It is never acceptable to speak or act in a way that intimidates, threatens, or denigrates the humanity of another participant, trainer, or community member.
• It is not appropriate to attend a ProKids Training to explicitly obtain legal or other advice for ongoing or past child protection involvement. ProKids trainers and staff will not comment on or engage in conversation about any specific child protection case.
• The goal of ProKids Trainings are to educate the community how to effectively advocate for children while involved in the child protection system. We are unable to answer questions or advise about issues not directly related to this goal.
Failure to follow these expectations will result in removal from and barring of participation in all ProKids education and training indefinitely.
“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.”
