Is a career in Social Work for you? Social workers help people deal with their relationships with others; solve their personal, family, and community problems; and grow and develop by learning to cope with or shape the social and environmental forces affecting daily life.
Social work is a profession for those with a spark of idealism, a belief in social justice, and a natural love of working with people. Social work offers the chance to work with and for people of all kinds: rich or poor, white or black, young or old, in hospitals, at home, or at work.
