Agency visit and social worker interview

 

Visit a social service agency in your area and interview a social worker there. Please make sure the individual you interview has a degree in social work. There are many professionals with degrees in related fields who call themselves social workers but do not actually have a degree(s) in social work. The interview must take place at the social worker’s place of employment. You may not interview a social worker in private practice, a social worker at your place of employment, or a professional in a related field. I already visited the agency. Its called Pinnacle Treatment Center  12695 McManus Blvd bldg 2, Newport News, VA 23602.
