Do you find yourself compelled to address, mediate, and negotiate problems?
Do you have the tendency to view an issue from multiple perspectives?
Do you feel driven to advocate for fairness, justice, and basic civil rights for all people?
Most importantly, do you want to build your communication, interpersonal, problem-solving, and leadership skills?
If you answered yes to any of these questions, then you are a social worker at heart. Beyond caring, social work requires specialized knowledge, practice skills, values and ethics. Social Workers are devoted to relieving misery, overcoming obstacles, and improving social conditions and services for people everywhere.
