Project: Agency Visit

In order to function as change agents, social workers interact with others in a wide variety of organizations. Visiting a social work agency allows students of social work to get a glimpse of the form that these interactions may take.

For this Assignment, visit a nonprofit social service agency in your area (Haven Rape Crisis Center in Valdosta Ga) and interview a social worker there.

During the interview:

  1. Focus on the social worker’s educational background and training.
  2. Determine whether the social worker is licensed, and find out about what brought him or her to the field as well as his or her work history.
  3. Inquire about the social worker’s job activities, professional roles, and target client group, as well as services provided by his or her organization.
  4. Determine the social worker’s professional work preferences (e.g., group, individual).
  5. Ask about professional development and the social worker’s strategies for self-care.

Submit a 5 page written account of your findings that satisfies the guidelines detailed in the Project: Agency Visit and Paper Rubric.
