What is Young Professionals for CASA (YPC)?
Young Professionals for CASA is a volunteer group of individuals between the ages of 21-45 years old, committed to helping provide an Advocate for every abused child in Montgomery County who needs one. It costs $1,215 to provide an Advocate for one abused child for one year. As a fundraising and friend-raising arm of CASA, we support the work done by Advocates with fundraisers, networking events, volunteer opportunities, and professional development.
YPC is an opportunity to share your time and talents to make an impact in the community while meeting new people and networking.
Why Young Professionals for CASA?
We recognize there are many who support the mission of CASA and wish to contribute to the organization, but may not have the time to handle the casework demands of serving as an Advocate. Through short-term volunteer opportunities ranging from event planning to an afternoon helping a foster youth learn to ride a bike, you can find your own way to give back. 100% of funds raised, including membership dues and event proceeds benefit CASA Child Advocates of Montgomery County.
