Leta Chen, MSW Candidate, Catholic University of America
To be a future social worker, I want to help people function the best they can in their environment, and to make changes for better life. The young and energetic student ambassador program provides the great opportunities for me to involve local communities, bring in the knowledge I have learned from school and give the positive influence to the community. Welcome to join us, our community needs you!
Susan Joyner, MSW Candidate, University of Maryland
Apart from the outstanding networking opportunity, participating as a student ambassador allowed me to become more engaged in social work on a macro level. I only had the opportuity to lobby but was trained to lead a group of students in lobbying and impact my knowledge of them.
Jerrica Stanley, MSW Candidate, University of Maryland
The benefits of being in the ambassador program are that you not only learn more about social workers’ involvement in the policy making process but it also allows you to be a part of the process even as a student. You’re exposed to individuals who you otherwise would not encounter while completing a college program.
Tiara Shelton, MSW Candidate, Howard University
“The ambassador program allows me to stay aware of social policy that needs more awareness and voices advocating for social justice. I wanted to be a part of a group that actually creates efforts towards the change we all want to see. “
