AUGUSTA — The Maine Court Appointed Special Advocates Program will hold its spring training for court-appointed child advocates March 4-7 in Augusta.

Maine CASAs are community volunteers who are appointed by the court to serve as guardians ad litem for a child whose parents are involved in a child protection court case. The training is free. Volunteers must be older than 21 and have a high school diploma or GED equivalent.
