Who Are Our Volunteers?

They also represent a diverse mix of cultural, ethnic, racial, and religious groups. Our volunteer team is made up of a wonderful pool of skills, talents, personalities, and backgrounds, all sharing a common passion for the well-being of children.
What Do Volunteers Do?

- Special event volunteers
- Child caregivers
- P.A.L. (mentor)

Volunteers as Part of the CAS Team
Our volunteers are part of our agency team. As such, they are selected, trained, and equipped to perform their duties at the highest level of proficiency. Regular evaluations and on-going training are part of the process used by Volunteer Services to ensure that our volunteers continue to be effective in achieving our mission. Volunteers are here because they love children and want to do whatever they can to assist the agency. By utilizing our volunteers in meaningful tasks, by encouraging them in their work, and by thanking them for their service, we can show our appreciation for this important part of the CAS team.
