Truancy Advocate

A CASA volunteer, involved in a truancy case, partners with the guardian ad litem, school staff and counselors, and the parent(s) to build a truancy support team and an action plan that is presented to the judge and then becomes an order of the court. Truancy court convenes once a month where the child and parent(s) meet with the judge to share their progress on the plan and the school shares their perspective of the child’s progress. The volunteer meets with the child and other interested parties in between these larger meetings to check in with the child, recommend support and services, provide encouragement, and continue to network with the child. The expectation is 10 hours per month. Volunteers complete 10 hours of training before being assigned to a case and are sworn in by the judge. When assigned a case, they are mentored by the Program Coordinator who provides support and suggestions for resources in the community.
