Applying to Become a CASA Volunteer

Applying to become a CASA volunteer includes two critical components: (1) an application and (2) a background check. Your application cannot be processed until both pieces are complete.

Step 1: Click on the following link to access the online application form:  CASA Volunteer Application

The application includes relevant information which will enable our staff to prepare for the screening interview.  Please be prepared to provide:

  • General information about yourself and your background;
  • A brief statement about why you would like to do this volunteer work;
  • Three references and their contact information; and
  • Your employment and address history.

Step 2:  Click on the following link to download a PDF file of a child abuse and criminal background check authorization form to complete: Background Check Authorization

Please fill in all appropriate fields, print, hand-sign, and submit by any of the following methods:

  • Scan and email to;
  • Fax to 918-923-4460; or
  • Mail to Child Advocates of Northeast Oklahoma (200 S. Lynn Riggs Blvd., Claremore, OK 74017)

All CASA volunteers and staff must pass a background check that includes criminal, child abuse and neglect, and driving records. Child Advocates of Northeast Oklahoma takes every precaution to ensure no one working with our organization poses a risk to children.  Remember, we cannot assign a case until a background check has been processed.

IMPORTANT NOTE:  CASA volunteer advocates must be at least 21 years of age.
