CASA Café or Lunch & Learn (continuing education for current volunteers)
CASA Volunteers must accrue 12 CEU (Continuing Education Units) each calendar year. These hours are earned by attending our various In-Service events throughout the year, by attending the Texas CASA Convention, attending various conferences and trainings offered locally.

Our volunteers may also read books or watch videos from the approved lists and submitting a synopsis. See Continuing Education section under Volunteer Tab for full details.
