YSocialWork, Inc. is a recruitment initiative for youth and young adults interested in social work.

Introduction to HS Social Work

Each class is high student-centered, experiential, and social work-oriented. Join us as we address real-world problems with an entrepreneurial mindset and social work competency-based ethics and values.

Community YSocialWork Pop-Up

Are you considering Social Work as a profession but attending a 2-year university? Join us as we explore social work competency-based ethics and values among community college students across Montgomery County and Prince George’s Counties.

Community College Internship

Are you a Southern Mangement Leadership Program student and interested in interning at YSocialWork, Inc.? Apply for consideration for the 2021-2021 Academic School Year.

At YSocialWork, Inc., we’ll unpack the broad range of competencies not only needed to aspire you to undertake a degree in social work, but also to ensure inclusive career development and learning, which should start years prior to enrollment in post-secondary education. The core values of our approach encompasses everything from self-integrity to dignity and worth to service to social justice to the importance of healthy human relationships. 

Strategic partners are critical to the success of our youth and young adults in rewarding careers in social work and entrepreneurial endeavors.

YSocialWork, Inc. is growing a wide array of impact programs that solve important problems in our professional and local community, including human service workforce shortages, youth unemployment, and housing services for youth transitioning from foster care to college.

Our goal is to find intersectionality between educational and human service improvements and then provide the best training and services to meet the needs of diverse students and the global workforce.

This year, we want to expand partnerships with corporations, government, and other nonprofits that share YSocialWork’s commitment to advancing youth and young adults in rewarding social work careers and other entrepreneurial endeavors.
