Hi Juan!


Here are some ideas about what you might want to study.

Locate a local chapter of the National Association of Social Workers and arrange to go to a meeting to meet and mingle with social workers and see how you fit.


Congratulations on being interested in becoming part of the solution.


Best of luck! Please keep me posted. I would like to follow your progress!


thank you! Juan R.

Here are some ideas about how to keep kids out of jail. You could learn much by visiting these programs and talking to their leaders to see what they do and how they got there and see if you can volunteer to learn more.
