Back to School Means Back to Educational Advocacy for Dallas CASA

September 6, 2022|

Educational advocacy can mean a lot of different things for the children served by Dallas CASA.

Testimonials

Volunteer Advocate

Juan prioritizes teaching each child the value of their uniqueness, heritage, and native language. He says being a bilingual advocate who can provide comfortable communication and understanding to their story and the pressures they face is invaluable. “I let them know they are valued, have a lot to offer, and have so many things to be proud of. It is so important to understand and value where you come from before you can be anything else.

I want to be a stabilizing influence for young men who need that. I tell them I won’t quit on them as long as they don’t quit on me.

Volunteering with Dallas CASA has taught me so much about the child welfare system and has helped me meet so many wonderful people. There is a reason advocates remain advocates for several years – they see a difference in children’s lives. I love hearing advocate testimonies. There are many different ways to get involved and directly or indirectly change a child’s life for the better! To change the world, you have to start with our future generation and CASA gives these kids a chance to be happy, loved, and have every opportunity for success in the future!
