Whether you are exploring how to become a social worker or looking for opportunities to be an agent of change, this MSW eBook guide was created to assist you in answering all of the questions that may be on your mind as you consider options for fulfilling your passions

I have always been a helper by nature. Social work is a helping profession and social workers are problem-solvers, movers and shakers, the doers. With an MSW degree, I can take what I have learned along with my own natural desire to serve others to make a difference in my community.
