Social Work Awareness Game in partnership with the San Diego Padres
The National Association of Social Workers will partner with the San Diego Padres to host the 3rd annual Social Work Awareness game versus the Los Angeles Dodgers. This year the celebration is entitled, "“Social Workers: Helping Families Flourish."
This year’s celebration entitled, “Social Workers: Helping Families Flourish” will honor social workers who specialize in working with families and will include pre-game and on field recognition of industry leaders.
The event is preceded by the celebration of national social work month in March. The National Association of Social Workers (NASW) celebrates its 60-year anniversary this year. It will begin an 8-month celebration that will end in October, the month NASW was founded in 1955.
This year’s social work month theme is “Social Work Paves the Way.” The focus of this theme is to educate the public about how social workers and the association have brought about major positive social changes, improved the lives of individuals and families, and will continue to do so in the future.
NASW’s website, http://www.socialworkers.org, will feature an Interactive Timeline that features important events in NASW’s history and the impact of the association. The site will also feature testimonials from NASW members in different stages of their careers to highlight all of the accomplishments that social workers have contributed over the years as well as the benefits of the association.
