Those who want to make a difference should consider volunteering to be a voice for kids as a Court Appointed Special Advocate (CASA).

A CASA orientation will be held Oct. 17, 6 p.m. at the Clark County Govt. Center 500 S. Grand Central Pkwy.

There is a big need for CASA volunteers in Clark County to speak up for the approximately 3,200 children in the community, who are receiving services under supervision of Family Court. CASA volunteers represent the children in school, family team meetings, and in court. Volunteering for the program involves a two-year commitment and a willingness to spend quality time with the children to advocate for them.

CASA orientations are held the third Wednesday of each month at 6 p.m. at the Government Center, 500 S. Grand Central Pkwy. More information is available about the program at 702-455-4306, visit or Facebook at!/CASALasVegas.
