World Social Work Day

World Social Work Day on the third Tuesday in March recognizes the hard work and dedication of social workers. A global organization of social workers comes together for social justice, human rights, and social development all through the promotion of best practices in social work.

Social workers serve many roles in their communities. They assess their client’s needs and challenges. As advocates, they speak for their clients, getting them access to the resources they need to improve their lives. Social workers also respond to crisis situations.

They work in many settings, too. Social workers find positions in medical facilities, child welfare and human service agencies, and schools. They can also work in education, teaching new social workers.

Each year, the observance promotes a specific theme. Visit the International Federation of Social Workers website for the latest information and themes.
