CODY-Court Orientation for Dependent Youth
We are excited to invite youth ages 12-17 to CODY (Court Orientation for Dependent Youth) Program. CODY is hosted by the CASA of Maricopa County Program, in conjunction with the Juvenile Court and community stakeholders. The program works to empower older dependent youth to advocate for themselves and take ownership of their own cases. 
 
Youth in child welfare are brought into court to hear from a judge, attorneys, DCS case worker, and CASA advocate on their roles and how youth can become more engaged in their own cases. It is followed with an informal pizza dinner where youth learn about resources available to them while they are in care and beyond. We also provide the youth, ages 12-17, a personal binder of information to keep, which includes a list of their legal parties with contact information, upcoming court dates and other informational materials, with places for business cards, photographs, personal information, etc.
  
WHEN:  August  21st
5:30pm-7:30pm
Durango Juvenile Court
Court Room 9
3131 W. Durango
Phoenix, AZ 85009

Mesa Juvenile Court
Cactus Room
1810 S. Lewis St

 SPACE IS LIMITED
There is no cost to participate!  The event is intended to educate and empower our foster care youth to take ownership of their cases.  We need placement providers like you to bring their youth to this great opportunity
 
Please sign up, and by the way, the adults get to eat the pizza too!
 
We need the names and birth dates for each youth who will attend, so we can create their personalized binder.
Please RSVP to CODY@maricopacasa.org ASAP to allow time to prepare the binders.
 
We, the CASA of Maricopa Program staff, hope that you can attend. Please let us know if you have any questions.
