National CASA CEO Michael Piraino and Rosie Burton, a youth with the San Diego Voices for Children program, will be featured on the Dr. Phil Show this Friday, April 20. Rosie shares her experience as a youth in foster care, discussing the risk factors that youth aging out of care face and the support she received from her CASA volunteer. Dr. Phil encourages the audience to visit National CASA’s new micro-site, with a co-branded page specifically designed for Dr. Phil and Robin’s call-to-action to support the CASA cause.
Rosie is also speaking at the National CASA conference, as a participant on a youth panel.
Please share this information with your staff and volunteers so they can tune in to the Dr. Phil Show on Friday! Also, please be prepared to respond promptly to the increased volume of volunteer inquiries that Dr. Phil Shows typically generate. Research demonstrates that the likelihood of interested individuals becoming active volunteers is greatest when contact is made within one week of their inquiry and decreases significantly after that.
