CASA Kane County, which trains volunteers as court appointed special advocates for abused and neglected children, will hold special recruitment meetings for men interested in volunteering from 5:30 to 6:30 p.m. Wednesdays, July 31, at Two Brothers Roundhouse, 205 N. Broadway, Aurora; Aug. 14 at Elgin Public House, 219 E. Chicago St., Elgin; and Aug. 28 at Pal Joey's, 31 N. River St., Batavia.

Invite your friends, neighbors and co-workers to attend this event. To RSVP, contact Deb McQuaid at or (630) 444-3110.

Currently, only 20 percent of CASA volunteers are men, but half of the nonprofit organization's caseload involves boys and young men in need of strong role models. Volunteers must first complete 40 hours of training before being sworn in by the juvenile court judge. All training is provided by CASA Kane County.

CASA Kane County is a nonprofit, volunteer organization that advocates for the best interests of abused and neglected children within the Juvenile Court system. Last year, the program served more than 550 children throughout the Kane County area.
