The Child Welfare Education Program is a collaborative effort between the Arizona State University School of Social Work and the Arizona Department of Child Safety (DCS). Students involved in the program receive financial assistance while pursuing their degrees in social work. In return, students contractually commit to work for DCS upon graduation. If you believe that you have the ability to make a difference for vulnerable families, then a career in child welfare may be a good fit for you. The ASU School of Social Work Child Welfare Education Program can prepare you to engage with families in a meaningful and transformational way.
