Join the Alaska CASA Team!

Join the incredible Alaska CASA team! Juneau CASA currently has a part-time opening for Program Coordinator.

What you will be doing:

This position is responsible for the overall coordination of the Juneau CASA Program, to include outreach and recruitment of volunteers; screening, training and retention activities; data collection and reporting; and grant management. This program will also be expanding to include volunteers in Ketchikan and Sitka. This position reports to the State Director of Alaska CASA and works in conjunction with Guardians ad Litem and program staff around the state to see more children/youth served by CASA volunteers.

In your role you will have direct influence on the local Juneau CASA Program. As part of the team you will be included in statewide decisions on the function and direction of Alaska CASA.

Our organization, mission and culture:

CASA Programs throughout Alaska recruit, train, and oversee volunteers who are tasked with becoming an expert on minors who are the subject of open child in need of aid (CINA) cases to ensure focused best interest advocacy for the children/youth involved in assigned cases. Our purpose is to make a positive difference in the life of children/youth who have experienced abuse and/or neglect.

Under Alaska CASA there are 4 local CASA Programs located in Anchorage, Mat-Su Valley, Fairbanks, & Juneau. Each local program has a local program coordinator who is a part of the greater Alaska CASA team. Local Program Coordinators and the State Director of Alaska CASA work collaboratively to ensure each program reaches as many children/youth as possible and to ensure each local program is given the ability to recruit, train, and oversee volunteers in a way that meets the local standards regarding best interest advocacy as well as standards identified by the National CASA Association. Members of the CASA team are committed to ensuring children and youth in abuse and neglect cases receive the best possible best interest advocacy through the work of CASA volunteers. Our hope is that each volunteer be the “expert” on the children/youth involved in the cases they are assigned. We embrace the values of cultural humility, the worth of every child/youth, honoring volunteers, striving for program excellence, and acting with integrity.

The benefits of joining our team:

A great benefit of joining the CASA team is know that you are making a difference in the lives of children/youth who have experienced abuse and/or neglect. This is a chance to work independently, implement ideas, and to be a part of the greater Alaska CASA team. Because you can see the direct impact of CASA volunteers in a child’s life, this job brings a tremendous amount of personal satisfaction. Additionally, this position works regularly with a small, dedicated group of individuals who are as excited as you are to help this program grow.
