City Year Give-a-Year Partnership

Wurzweiler School of Social Work is proud to partner with City Year. The rich perspective and experience City Year alumni bring to their educational experience is valued by WSSW, and we understand how City Year experience prepares alumni for entry into the field of social work. We also appreciate that City Year alumni have demonstrated a passion to helping youth at risk, with a commitment to the values of service to a cause greater than the self, collaboration, belief in the power of young people, social justice, empathy, inclusivity, teamwork and excellence. These values are in line with the mission of our school and the values of the profession.
