Message from the SWA
The Social Work Association (SWA) is at it again by creating service learning projects and community involvement opportunities. Members of SWA were present and volunteered at the Take Back the Night Rally, which fights against domestic violence by raising awareness of this continued issue. SWA members also organized a campus clean up to remove garbage before the winter season hits St. Cloud. We are also bringing back the Social Work Panel this year by having five social workers from the community come and speak about their experience in the social work profession. We are bringing in professional Social Workers who will speak about working with veterans, mental health, adoption, child protection, and general social work jobs. The social work association is working hard to increase awareness of this club and what the social work profession is involved in. Three SWA members spoke to the incoming social work majors and answered questions about education requirement, what to expect, sixty-hour placements, and internships. The Social Work Association is working as a whole to build a sense of community.
