In September 2017, NCWWI celebrated the first National Child Welfare Workforce Development Month. Our intent was to help child welfare programs develop a comprehensive approach to stimulating the health of their workforce by sharing tools and resources. It was also to honor the hard work of child welfare professionals in improving outcomes for children, youth, and families in our communities. That same year, the Senate passed a bipartisan resolution to recognize September as “National Workforce Development Month” in order to promote federal workforce development investments to ensure the country’s economic competitiveness. Every year we look to build on the original celebration by finding new and exciting ways to show appreciation to our workforce. We hope you’ll celebrate with us every September.
