Juvenile Courts – Guardian Ad Litem and Court-Appointed Special Advocates

Sometimes, juvenile courts appoint guardians ad litem (GALs), who represent the best interests of juveniles. Court-Appointed Special Advocates (CASA) is a program that appoints guardians to help juvenile delinquents.

Please help me with:
A brief definition of the responsibilities of a guardian ad litem.
The definition of CASA and an explanation of when CASA is most often utilized.
The importance of having a program such as this and the way it helps community children.
The reason why people should volunteer as guardians for this program
