Court Appointed Special Advocates of Los Angeles (CASA/LA) mobilizes community volunteers to advocate for children who have experienced abuse and neglect. The organization envisions a Los Angeles in which every child in the child welfare system has an advocate and the opportunity to thrive. CASA/LA is on a path to expand services to 12,000 of the estimated 30,000 children in the LA County’s dependency system every year. Key to these efforts is growth in the number of people who know about CASA/LA, the number of volunteers recruited and trained each year, and revenue generated from individuals, foundations, corporations and government sources.
The Advocate Supervisor reports to the Advocacy Team Manager and provides orientation, engagement, coaching, mentoring, training, support and overall leadership and management to a team of CASA (advocate) volunteers. The supervisor ensures the highest level of advocacy intervention and efforts for each child/youth appointed to a CASA. The supervisor must demonstrate general subject matter expertise in the area of child welfare and child advocacy (0-21 years of age) and be able to convey that knowledge and impart it on a layperson who is unfamiliar that ensures their ability to thrive in their volunteer role. The Advocate Supervisor must be able to lead the team of CASAs successfully through their 2-year or other time-appointed assignment.
