Child Welfare Scholar Coaching

Our Partnership

We collaborated with the University of Alabama on a project intended to facilitate coaching and preparation for child welfare scholars. The project's goals were to enhance and increase the competence and confidence of child welfare scholars entering the workforce, allowing them to better manage the stress and trauma associated with the work. 

We believe the research and ingenuity achieved through collaborations like these is essential as we work to influence policy, improve services and develop solutions that help improve childrens' lives.
