Student Involvement in BAABSW

Welcome to the Student Page of the Bay Area Association of Black Social 
Workerswebsite! Joining BAABSW as a student offers an enriching 
educational andprofessional experience that you will not find anywhere 
else. Unfortunately, asSocial Work students of Afrikan ancestry, our 
curriculum does not always give equalweight to teaching the rich history of
 Black Social Work as a profession. Therefore,it is our responsibility to engage 
with this history through additional avenues. Yourmembership in the 
BAABSW is a great step towards exploring the legacy that we are
called to continue.

As a student member of the Bay Area Association of Black Social Workers
(BAABSW), you will have access to:
• Mentorship with experienced Social Workers
• Peer support from other students of Afrikan ancestry
• Assistance with Career Planning
• Scholarships
• Discounted Registration to the Annual NABSW Conference
• Opportunities for Community Service
• Opportunities for Professional Growth
• Educational Forums

Please keep checking the website for upcoming Networking, Social, and Fundraising events catered just for Social Work students!
