Continuing Education and Community Engagement
Our First Tuesdays are a great avenue for hosting training and providing volunteers with an opportunity to learn, review cases and network with one another. Thanks to the following presenters for contributing their time and expertise to help strengthen our program: Nicole Stanish, Abused Women’s Aid in Crisis (AWAIC); Allen Blair, licensed psychologist and professional counselor; Cathy Baldwin-Johnson, Alaska Cares Medical Director; Barb Malchick, Volunteer GAL and Court Improvement Project (CIP) Facilitator.
The next First Tuesdays training will be presented by Victoria Kendall from Programs for Infants and Children (PIC) in February and Brenda Ursel from Alaska Center for Resource Families (AWRC) in March.
Friends of Alaska CASA (FAC) has continued to provide our program with fantastic support. Thank you FAC for providing funding to help with training costs, for helping us to provide our volunteers with tokens of appreciation, for enabling us to fund volunteer activities with their CASA youths and for making it possible for program staff and volunteers to attend the annual National CASA conferences !!!
