Due to the ongoing Covid-19 health crisis, the upcoming pre-service training sessions will be online, self-guided trainings with two weekly group chat sessions over Zoom video conferencing facilitated by Office of the Court Appointed Special Advocate Program Coordinators. Group chat sessions will take place Tuesday and Thursday evenings from 5:30 pm - 7:30 pm. In total, pre-service training will take three weeks to complete. Materials for each training session will be sent to participants on the Friday before the first group chat session.
