Celebrate Social Work Month
March 2, 2022
March is Social Work Month! Social work is a growing profession, and there is an immense need for social workers.
The theme for Social Work Month 2022 is: The Time is Right for Social Work
Please come out and join us in the following activities (open to everyone):
- Participate in a film screening of The Florida Project, a movie touching on topics of child welfare and childhood poverty, on Monday, April 4, 2022, at 7 pm in the Bengal Theater.
