Students training for out-state work with children

Monday, April 4, 2005

Sixteen SCSU students have won the opportunity to participate, with stipend support, in a program designed to train them to work after graduation in child service agencies in non-metro areas of Minnesota. Recipients will receive $2,800 a year during their junior and senior years at the university.

The 16 students will take a designated child welfare services course and attend seminars designed for them, then complete 480 hours of supervised
experience in a Title IV-E recipient agency. In return, upon graduation each will accept a social work position in a Title IV-E agency in a non-metropolitan area.

The student support is possible because the SCSU Department of Social Work is participating in the newly-formed Bachelor of Social Work Child Welfare Consortium with sister departments at the University of Minnesota, the state universities at Moorhead, Mankato, Winona and Bemidji, and the Minnesota Department of Human Services.
