VIRTUAL Utah CASA Conference

September 24th
2:00 - 4:00 P.M.

In the Utah Court System, there are Guardian Ad Litems (GAL). These are lawyers that represent the interests of children who enter the foster care system. Each GAL may have hundreds of cases and rely on help from Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA); these people are appointed to one case each. Once a year, CASAs in Utah get together to receive training and exchange tips/ideas with their cases. ITA has been invited to the conference to provide an outlet for the CASA volunteers!

We need a couple of teams willing to attend a virtual conference to talk about the benefits of animals for children in tough life situations.
