Framework

At YSocialWork, Inc., we’ll unpack the broad range of competencies to inspire you to undertake a degree in social work. The core values of our approach encompass integrity, dignity, self-worth, social justice, and service. We center on healthy human relationships. 

Our Social Work Learning and Career Development Continuum recognizes and engages high school students in social work field education.

Motivated by social learning theory, students are given classroom examples that provide the basis for how to learn, respond and internalize social norms during adolescence, so they are able to provoke social change during their transition into adulthood.
