Read these testimonials from CASA/GAL graduates of the Children’s Law and Policy Executive Program:
“This was an amazing professional development opportunity. I am grateful for the learning experience. Having a CASA cohort allowed us to meet new people and see how other CASA/GAL programs, from across the nation, operate.” – Amy Cermak, Northern Hills Area CASA
“By better understanding the Law and history of the Child Welfare system provides much needed context to the role of CASA as best interest advocates for children. The leadership class was very directly relevant and related to the day to day of my job.” – Andrea Bruns, Kentucky CASA Network, Inc.
“The studies have improved my ability to lead in the program and train volunteers and staff. The first two classes increased my understanding of children’s law and policy. I have a greater understanding of how policies are created and written. I am able to use examples of laws during training, so volunteers with little child welfare experience have a better understanding of the system. The leadership class has helped me understand my personality and my leadership style. I now feel more confident in my ability to lead staff and advocates.” – Mitchell Samick, CASA of Westmoreland
