Real Stories From The Field

The Real Stories project is a multimedia collection of workforce development stories from students, faculty, and child welfare professionals at all levels. Each project provides unique, first-person insight into the impact that NCWWI initiatives and partnerships are having on workforce and child welfare practice across the country. Utilize our a Real Stories Tool Kit to bring together colleagues/staff, students, and/or community members for rich discussions about innovative workforce development initiatives.
