EDM Training: Apply today!

6:00pm - 9:00pm

This year, CASA was awarded a grant from Impact100 Philadelphia to develop our Educational Decision Maker (EDM) program.  An EDM volunteer is an individual who has been screened and trained by CASA Philadelphia and appointed by the court to serve as the legal “parent” for children in out-of-home care who do not have anyone to make educational decisions on their behalf.

We are looking for:

~Someone who forms a direct relationship with the child.

~Someone who will visit that child as needed to address educational concerns.

~Someone who will have contact with school personnel, caseworkers, and placement facility staff about the child’s educational needs.

~Someone who will attend school meetings and review appropriate school records.
 

A background in education is preferred, but not required.

This stand-alone training is designed for volunteers who would like to train to be EDM volunteers only.

Send in your application today!  http://casaphiladelphia.org/volunteer-application
