  2. Where Do I Start? Grantwriting for Beginners

    May 3, 2024 - 1:00pm to 4:00pm

    Non-profits should engage in a diverse funding model. Grants often are a part of a diversified strategy. That said, many non-profits do not have the resources for a dedicated grant writer, therefore these responsibilities fall within other roles. This presentation allows social workers to begin to understand what type of grant funding is available and to learn the first steps required to initiate an application.

    We invite you to become a Community Conversations facilitator! We extend this opportunity to all SSW staff, students, and faculty.

    There will be a two-session Community Conversations facilitator training, held on Zoom on May 13th and May 20th from 5-7 pm. Both sessions are required, along with pre-work to be completed before the first session on May 13th. The training will equip you with intergroup and restorative dialogue skills, which include a strong anti-racist history and deeply embed PODS into their structure and approach. These skills are applicable in micro-, mezzo-, and macro- social work practice and help to develop all of the nine social work competencies.

    Community Conversations bring us together in dialogues in which we are all teachers and learners, and which help create an environment of compassion, understanding, and change. These conversations help us to broaden our perspectives and to discover collective meaning.

    We hope to see many of you on May 13th and May 20th!
