Angelina, Polk and Houston Counties all offer training throughout the year. As required by National CASA, each trainee much participate in at least 30 hours of training to become an advocate. At least 10 hours of this training must by face-to-face, while the other portion can be through independent study. We at CASA understand that each trainee has other responsibilities, so we work to fit training into each person's time and schedule.
