This assignment is an opportunity to learn about the roles of social workers within a social services agency and how they work to change the environment through direct community impact services or intervention services provided to a particular client population. Read through all these instructions before you start your assignment.
Choose a social services agency that you are interested in learning more about and that employees professional social workers (workers with a social work degree).
Look at the agencys website to gather information about what they do (mission statement, services, programs, etc.).
Identify the target population (who the services are meant for) and do some research on that populations needs. For example, if the agencys target population is children that have been abused or neglected, you are to find out what these children need in order to be successful. You may find research that these children need a safe permanent home and some kind of counseling support to heal from trauma.
Talk to someone that works within the agency (via email, telephone, or video call) about what a typical day of a social worker there looks like. You may have to schedule this in advanced so that they have time to talk to you. A good starting question for them may be, What do social workers do within your agency? You are expected to ask follow up questions based on what they say so that you could get a good understanding of what social workers do there.
You are then to type at least a 4 full paged (not including the cover or reference pages), APA formatted, double spaced paper based on the information you found out about the agency and social workers.
You are to answer the questions below. Address each of these questions in your paper using the bolded headings. Use the bolded headings below as the headings in your paper. Be sure to proof read your paper for flow, grammatical and spelling errors. Cite your research according to American Psychological Association (APA) format. There are resources online to help you cite or you may check in with the Reading and Writing center through FCC campus for assistance with APA format. Your interview with someone from the agency could be included in which ever section you think it fits best.
