School May Be Out But We Are In: August Newsletter 2019

Greetings

School may be out, however, for us at CASA of Noble County, the trainings are in full swing. As well as, continuing our education we have been refreshing ourselves with the National CASA’s training manual as we get ready to train a new volunteer.

At the same time, like the rest of Noble County, we are preparing to make an appearance at the Noble County Fair, August 26th-31st, 2019. Stop by and visit and learn more about the CASA Program. Not to mention, we will be on the Junior Fair Donation List.

Two Days in May

We had the opportunity to send four members of our team to this event put together by The Ohio Attorney General’s Office. With the theme being “Hidden Victim, Hidden Crime”. Those involved in the Justice System are able to find a training just right for them. Of Course, these classes allow Advocates to continue their education, network and learn innovative ways to serve victims of crimes.

Firstly, we attend conferences like this to gain new knowledge. Secondly, leads to us learn new skills for the office, the field and the courtroom. As a result, we can continue to safeguard victims’ rights every day. Also, we can advocate for the victims to the best of our abilities. We are looking forward to the CASA for Kids Conference in September, where we may continue to gain knowledge in our field.

At the CASA for Kids Conference, we will be taking a raffle basket with us again with items from Noble County. If you would like to donate please contact us at 740-732-0847

Mental Health First Aid

 OSU hosted a training on Youth Mental Health First Aid. This was a very informative training that will be very beneficial to everyone. This training teaches members of the public how to respond in a metal health emergency with youth and young adults to offer support to a young person who appears to be in emotional distress.
