What is CASA?
CASA is a program that is offered all year round for youth and young adult groups. Its aim is to provide local learning and serving opportunities in Calgary by providing groups with a first hand look at poverty and homelessness. CASA is available for youth and young adult groups upon request depending on availability and it can last between 1-5 days. Each CASA program is created around the needs of the group.
How it works
We have partnered with several local agencies who will offer presentations and service opportunities for youth. MCC works as a facilitator and liaison between the group and our partner agencies, and provides reflection and debriefing time as needed. Each agency offers a different experience based the nature of the services they provide to the community and their availability. CASA is all about flexibility and each visit takes shape differently depending on what we encounter at each agency.
