What We Do

YSocialWork is a New Pedagogical Style of Learning for the Next Generation.

YSocialWork Inc. was incorporated in the State of Maryland in 2019 as a multi-racial, multi-issue, progressive network of social workers and allies creating social change in human services through advocacy, organizing, and fundraising among adolescents and young adults globally who have experienced trauma or are interested in social work application across disciplines.

SocialWork, Inc. se constituyó en el Estado de Maryland en 2019 como una red progresiva y multirracial que aborda diversos temas, conformada por trabajadores sociales y aliados que crean un cambio social en los servicios humanos a través de la defensa, la organización y la recaudación de fondos, entre adolescentes y adultos jóvenes de todo el munIdo que experimentaron un trauma o estan interesados en la aplication del trabajo social.

Our Point of View

Our belief is simple.

YSocialWork, Inc. strives to uplift social work in a new power pedagogical structure that is anti-gatekeeping, anti-racism, anti-patriarchy, and anti-privilege, by implementing programs that are pro-equitably, pro-diversity, pro-innovation, and pro-collectivism and will advance youth and young adults in futurist social work careers.

YSocialWork, Inc. se esfuerza por elevar el trabajo social en una nueva estructura pedagógica de poder que está en contra de la vigilancia, el racismo, el patriarcado y los privilegios, mediante la implementación de programas que son pro-equidad, pro-diversidad, pro-innovación , y pro-colectivismo y promoverá a jóvenes y adultos jóvenes en carreras de trabajo social futuristas.

As the profession continues to rethink the direction of the Social Work Reinvestment Act, which was first introduced by former Congressman Towns nearly a decade ago, YSocialWork, Inc. wants to serve as an incubator for a variety of innovative workforce and educational improvement programs to replicate across the country, in hopes to supply the next generation with the global and entrepreneurial skills to meet the increased demand for social work services in this new COVID-19 reality.

A medida que la profesión continúa reconsiderando la dirección de la Ley de reinversión en trabajo social, que fue presentada por primera vez por el excongresista Towns hace casi una década, YSocialWork, Inc. quiere servir como incubadora para una variedad de programas innovadores de mejora educativa y de la fuerza laboral para replicar en todo el país, con la esperanza de proporcionar a la próxima generación las habilidades globales y empresariales para satisfacer la mayor demanda de servicios de trabajo social en esta nueva realidad de COVID-19.

How We Do It

Creating opportunities for high school and community college students in social work is a fresh new start.

Our learning and career development continuum places a strong emphasis on work-based learning beginning as early as 11th grade in preparation for a career in social work. Through our continuum model, students will receive academic preparation for both high school completion, college readiness, and career development.

Strategic Plan 2020

One of YSocialWork’s strategic goals is to increase the number of high school and community college students in social work education programs. We intend to achieve this goal along the way by convening the youngest and brightest and equipping them with the necessary tools, including fundraising, community development, and digital storytelling, to achieve social, racial, and environmental change in human services.

The first phase is to pilot two overlapping recruitment programs. The Community College Student Internship and the High School Experiential Classroom can provide an exciting and challenging opportunity for youth and young adults who aspire to make a significant impact in the world but have not considered social work a career option.

Following this pilot year, YSocialWork, Inc. will convene a strategic planning committee of stakeholders who can further assess the direction of YSocialWork, Inc. for FY2.

“You never teach a subject, you always teach a child. You teach children in a way that they will learn, and then things will fall in place for them.”

“Every man is our brother, and every man’s burden is our own. Where poverty exists, all are poorer. Where hate flourishes, all are corrupted. Where injustice reins, all are unequal.”
