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.  


 

PARTNERSHIPS AS A PATHWAY TO CHANGE

Partnerships as a Pathway to Change explores the Connecticut Department of Children & Families' connection with the University of Connecticut’s School of Social Work and how it made a huge difference with their workforce. As told by the people who lived it, the partnership improved diversity in the workplace, strengthened social work curricula, and enhanced the relationships between the agency and school for improved placements and transition to work. Their partnership paved the way for a pathway to change.
