  • Meet regularly with Court, Juvenile Office, Guardian Ad Litem, and Children’s Division staff, keeping all informed of relevant activities, issues, and problem-solving.
  • Develop and maintain relationships with sister agencies:  United Way, Birthday Blessings, Chaffee, etc.

  • Assure agency compliance with National and Missouri CASA standards (e.g., policies and procedures compliant; audit schedule).
  • Attend and work with National and Missouri CASA through required conference and meeting attendance.

Community and Public Relations, with the Volunteer Coordinator as partner, serve the children and mission of CASA by reaching out to civic organizations, clubs, and individuals throughout the 37th Circuit with fund and friend rising.

Candidates must have a strong commitment to the goal of providing quality advocacy for every child for which our court requests one; experience working with or on behalf of children; experience working with or as a volunteer; ability to speak to groups for the purpose of friend and fundraising.  Candidates have a minimum of a Bachelor’s degree or relevant work experience; advanced degrees in Business or Public Administration, social work, psychology, or related areas are a bonus.  Must demonstrate strong skills in fiscal management, leadership, personnel management, resource development and maintenance, agency and program planning, and public relations.  Previous experience working with volunteers and non-profit agencies, and knowledge and understanding of child abuse and neglect, families in crisis, and other social services skills are given priority.  Other skills required:  computer (document creation and storage/word processing, worksheets, QuickBooks, etc.), grant writing, and fundraising.  Must be self-motivated, with high moral and ethical standards, and have excellent judgment.  Must be able to work evenings/weekends occasionally, when necessary.  Continuous education (12 hours annually) is a requirement.

In our area, understanding culture is critical in effective public outreach.  Culture can be more than age, race, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, or religion.  Equally or sometimes even more important domains include knowledge (or lack thereof), attitude/viewpoint, skills, values, practices, beliefs, economics, multi-generational history with the area, and “townie” vs. remote rural.  From our Board, our staff, and our volunteers, effective advocacy is based on a true understanding of the children and the environment from which they come or have been thrust into as wards of the State.  This also is evident in our challenge at times to coordinate effectively benefits across social services (Children’s Division; Juvenile Office) as these organizations can have their own internal “cultures” as well.  Effective, culturally sensitive services to our children are ultimately at the interface between our volunteer advocates and our children, but the tone and precedent is set from our organization’s leadership.
