My ......, are still happening but she sees some needs for organizational leadership on a steady basis.
Again, my apologies to you.
I appreciate that, I could spend a few hours educating myself about this. The are many organizations like this. That is why I ask questions of Intheloop and others. Some people like to poke and be flip, that's Okay too.

TG I did not see any question posed to me? I apologize if I missed something.

Not Sure About That, I am glad you are following through and going to the hearings, it is honest people like you that must stand up and look at these leeches in the eyes and let them know they will be held accountable and can't climb under a rock and breed their slimy criminal activities in secret.

I asked no questions of you, I just get good feedback from you. I was using you as an example of the many good posters here.

If they could get along without a Director "for months", why did they need one in the first place? Why do these organizations need to have a supervisor for every two people?
Yolo County CASA has the following three filled full-time positions: Executive Director, Training and Recruitment, and Case Supervisor. The organization has dozens of volunteers, I believe the actual figure exceeds fifty. So, they are not exactly top-heavy, would you agree?

Just google Yolo County CASA and click on "staff" if you must see for yourself. Won't find the exact number of volunteers there, though.

Hate seeing comments like this, which question the competency and efficiency of this organization, when at least some of the information is readily available. This organization's three employees work very hard to assist its volunteers and the children they advocate for.

Good post and I hope it answers some of the misnomers out there. There were 40 volunteers alone in the training class last spring.

My friend applied to be a CASA volunteer when she retired at 70. She was told that they were looking for younger volunteers.

Since when is 70 too old to volunteer?

She had raised her own children who were successful in life, had her own car, a good knowledge of Woodland, was a retired professional with a good education, and a tremendous heart-felt desire to help kids. She had been active in forming and volunteering in several child related organizations.

Whose decision was this?

Thanks. Now, with a director now running things, the Training and Recruitment Coordinatior can refocus her energy towards getting more volunteers, which is something she's been quite successful at in the past.

The poster, tg Woodland, commented “Why do these organizations need to have a supervisor for every two people?” If by “these organizations” he or she’s referring to non-profits, I don’t know many non-profits that are plagued with the problem of having too many management and supervisor positions. Most I’ve worked with and volunteered for function with the bare minimum and rely heavily on the generosity of others’ time.

That doesn't sound like something they would say. The fact is the CASA organization in general is in need of younger male volunteers. The consensus seems to be threat younger men mentors can have a different impact on the boys than a female elderly woman. I'm not speaking for CASA, but I believe this to be the case.

That said, I can't imagine them turning down a volunteer because of her age alone. There are plenty of elderly CASA's in the country. My observation is that most CASAs are over 50 and female.

The training and volunteer work itself can be quite demanding. Therefore, it tends to attract those who've got some extra time...retirees. Being CASA is not a show up for two hours once or twice a month deal, it's like a part-time job for a lot of these volunteers.

As to your friend, I she met the criteria and made it through the background process, I don't know what to tell you. Maybe she should seek clarification again from the organization?

Thank you for the information. Perhaps they felt that not enough time was available to her, and she didn't mention or understand that part.

At any rate, your explanation does clear up some rather negative feelings I had.

This happened several years ago, and she has now passed away.

No problem, "we see." There are many reasons why someone could be denied becoming a CASA volunteer, but without knowing anything about your friend, it's difficult for me to offer a guess.

I think CASA generally tries find ways to accommodate potential volunteers, for what its worth. Their main objective is to provide these kids with quality people who can help them out; limiting the pool by assigning an age cut-off for volunteers would be counterintuitive.

Sorry to hear about your friend's passing.

*Just a reminder, I'm not speaking on the behalf of the CASA Organization.

The mere fact that a person sits in on an open court hearing makes that individual an honest person?

I am surprised you would attack me on this one. I follow TOI's posts and find him to be fair and honest in his opinions. I have no reason to believe otherwise.

Sorry if that makes you feel uncomfortable.....

Uncomfortable? What are you talking about? After reading this thread you deduced that a person is honest with little to no facts. You're the one who has some splainin' to do.

ITL has NO splainin' to do. She made an assumption the person was honest. Big deal. Sure, no proof the person is honest or otherwise. Hardly a crime committed by ITL. Move on.

You deduced that I made an assumption based on reading this thread. My assumption was based on reading many many threads over the course of months on many many topics. Unlike you, there are a few of us that dare to post under the same registered name and it makes it easier to follow ones opinion and/or credibility.
