Child Welfare and Partnerships Training

Title IV-E Project

In order to promote professional education for child welfare workers, the New Hampshire Department of Health and Human Services/Division for Children, Youth and Families (NH-DCYF) and the UNH Department of Social Work are collaborating to offer Social Work students an opportunity to focus their education and future employment in the area of Child Welfare. The Child Welfare Educational Tuition Partnership, Title IV-E Project, seeks to:

  • Equip selected BSW and MSW students with knowledge, skills, values, and cultural/ethnic competency to become effective public child welfare workers in New Hampshire
  • Increase the number of BSW and MSW graduates employed by the Division for Children, Youth and Families
  • Develop curriculum and training resources to support the practice of New Hampshire Child Protective workers
