Why do you volunteer?

I enjoy giving back to the community I grew up in. It also allows me to be able to make a difference with youth. It makes me feel involved with the community while contributing to a cause that I greatly care about. I enjoy volunteering for CASA because I can use my skills in a productive way and make a positive impact in a child’s life. Even though being a volunteer may be challenging at times, it is also so rewarding in so many ways.
