Peer Coordinator Program

The Peer Coordinator model provides additional opportunities for CASA volunteers to have a positive impact on the children that we serve. Peer Coordinators are recruited and trained to support and supervise other CASA volunteers. With the Peer Coordinator model, CASA Jeffco/Gilpin will be able to serve a larger number of abused and neglected children with a trained advocate without adding additional staff members and financial expenses.

Why Become a Peer Coordinator?

  • A Different Type of Volunteering – If you’d like a break from working directly with youth, try it from another angle, by supporting your peers in their work.
  • Make Closer Connections – CASA Volunteers work individually on cases, but as a Peer Coordinator you’ll be working with multiple volunteers and CASA staff.
  • Learn and Develop Your Coaching Skills – The role of the Peer Coordinator isn’t to have all the answers, but to help volunteers find their own right answers.
  • Build Organizational Capacity – What if we told you we could eventually serve all the youth in care in Jefferson and Gilpin Counties? This program expands our capacity to increase youth served with minimal impact on the budget.
  • Gain Professional Experience – We will provide you with training and resources to grow in your role as a Peer Coordinator; skills include coaching, giving positive constructive feedback, conflict resolution, and more!
