For anyone who would like to contribute to this guide, we would like your help!

  • This commitment would be from now – Dec 31, 2019.
  • It will include bi-monthly meetings and a review of next steps once the guide is completed.

Please note: We will be receiving advice from people with experience creating materials for CSWE. You do not need to be a social worker to join this group!
