A Court Appointed Special Advocate (or CASA) is a trained, dedicated and caring community volunteer, who has the opportunity to broadly influence the life of a foster child by advocating across many important life issues, including permanent placement, health care, education, and enrichment activities. Many more children can thrive with the intensive intervention of a CASA volunteer, and this is how you can help.
The first step toward becoming a Court Appointed Special Advocate (CASA) is attending an information session. Join us for an hour to learn how you can make a much needed difference in the life of a foster child. No specific education background is necessary, as we offer a comprehensive training course for all potential advocates before they are paired with children.
For more information, or to RSVP for this or a different information session, please visit: http://casala.org/volunteer/. We look forward to sharing more information about the work of CASAs at the information session!

Come learn about the mission of GCJ and the opportunity to become a citizen diplomat on our next delegation - to India, January of 2017. You'll also learn about volunteer opportunties for the 'ground crew' who support from Stateside.
You'll meet two extraordinary young men who were plucked out of the dustbins of slums in India to grow up at Maher and become nationally recognized scholars. Their stories will inspire you.
GCJ will be hosted by Maher, an extraordinatory community of unconditional love founded by Sister Lucy Kurien for battered and abandoned women and children. In the rural area of Pune there are nearly 40 homes for over 900 children and and 200 women in this deeply spiritual community that crosses all faiths, castes and classes. Beyond shelter, Maher is working for sustainable and deep cultural change to empower girls and women. They have spawned over 500 self help groups in the area.
