Social Work Day on the Hill
Social Work Day on the Hill is an annual event that is sponsored by the National Association of Social Workers. Practitioners, educators and students from all over the state come together at Legislative Plaza to discuss the policy responses to the issues that impact our profession and the clients we serve. In addition to presenting knowledgeable speakers and legislators, the event serves as a call to action and is a unifying experience that links the practice community to social welfare policy.
Napier Elementary School
Each year the Social Work Club hosts one or two events for students at Napier Elementary School. The inner-city school children delight in celebrating holidays with activities provided by the social work students. This year's event included refreshments, a craft project, and presenting the students with a cloth tote bag full of school supplies, gloves, socks, a hat, and healthy snacks.
Belmont's Literacy Day
Each spring, Belmont hosts a Literacy Day for the neighborhood children. Our students gather on the lawn, sitting on blankets, and read to the students. This event is fun for all that participate.
