About Enotah CASA & Lumpkin Youth Leadership
CASA is the only volunteer organization that empowers everyday citizens as officers of the court. In an overburdened social welfare system, abused and neglected children often slip through the cracks among hundreds of open cases. CASA volunteers change that. Appointed by judges, CASA volunteers typically handle just one case at a time—and commit to staying on that case until the child is placed in a safe, permanent home. While others may come and go, CASA volunteers provide that one constant that children need in order to thrive. One person can make a world of difference to a child.
Lumpkin Youth Leadership is a leadership project designed to enhance, inspire, and empower freshman and sophomore high school students to explore leadership and career opportunities within the community. The project connects students to community resources and leaders, develops awareness of community challenges and opportunities, as well as engages students in community projects. Students will be empowered with new life skills; connected with community institutions and resources; inspired to explore civic responsibilities; energized to seek potential career pathways; motivated to make a life-long commitment to Lumpkin County; and able to develop and implement a community group project (Adventure Race).
