AABSW is here to support the journey of Black Social Workers in Alberta
The AABSW was developed in response to a need for community, connection, support and recognition. We focus on addressing these needs by providing social networking, peer support, mentorship, supervision, professional development, education, training, community service, organizational support, advocacy and research.
Whether you’re interested in a career in social services, are a social service professional looking to donate your time and skills to a cause that’s close to your heart or you want to be a nonprofessional social services volunteer, you’ll find plenty of social work volunteer opportunities. As a volunteer for social services, you’ll learn a lot about social work, help your community, and, if seeking a career in the field, develop your resume to boot.
With so many different types of social services organizations around, it’s important to think about which types of volunteer opportunities will be the best fit for you. Fill this form if you are interested in volunteering or updates on open opportunities in your area.
