In addition, we hope you will join us to celebrate Child Welfare Workforce Development Month throughout the month of September!

For child welfare programs, it's a time to focus on how to better support and recognize your most important asset - the workforce.

For universities and colleges with social work programs, it’s an opportunity to share the highlights of a career in child welfare and recruit students to participate in specialized child welfare programs that you offer.

For child welfare professionals, it's an opportunitity to get refocused on the heart work. This is about remembering why you do this difficult work; learning new skills that will improve your impact and resilience; and finding ways to lift and support those around you.

For social work students, it’s an opportunity to learn more about child welfare practice and connect with the heart of this work.

More information about Workforce Development Month is available on our website NCWWI.org/CWworkforce.
