School Social Work week has come to a close, but the whole month of March is Social Work month! Take this time to reflect on your own Social Work practice or how your life has been positively impacted by a Social Worker.
This year's theme is "Social Work Paves the Way for Change." Click here to learn what this is all about. The National Association of Social Workers (NASW) also has an interactive timeline detailing the development of NASW.
Last week was School Social Work week. Governor McCrory honored School Social Workers across the state by official proclamation that March 1-7, 2015 is School Social Work week. Our president, Elizabeth Munson, was presented with the proclamation.
"The State of North Carolina is proud to recognize the importance of social work in our schools and the critical role that school social workers play in helping mold and educate North Carolina Children"
-Governor Pat McCrory
