Virtual PCWCP Panel
March 4 @ 5:00 pm - 6:00 pm
The contemporary social work practice landscape is complex. To address those complexities, our students require an unparalleled educational experience.
We can help with that.
Our two-year Public Child Welfare Certification Program was designed with students in mind. This competitive program provides in-state tuition, a stipend, and a job upon graduation through a two-year employment commitment with the Kentucky Cabinet for Health and Family Services following successful completion of the program – all while earning your degree.
Join us on Thursday, March 4th at 5 PM EST for a virtual discussion panel with past and present PCWCP students. The panelists will include an alumnus working in the public child welfare field as well as two students currently in the program. This event is free and open to current students, prospective students, and exploratory students.
