There are many online podcasts and courses on child welfare issues, which CASA volunteers can take advantage of. Many, but not all, of these resources are free of charge. Some of these are directed to child welfare professionals, foster parents, or foster youth. Note that CASA of Los Angeles has not reviewed all these courses and is not specifically endorsing the content of any of these resources. If you take a course or podcast and believe that the content is not appropriate, we encourage you to contact us and suggest we remove it.
