The Minnesota Child Welfare Workforce Collaborative trains and develops child welfare professionals to serve children and families.
Training child welfare professionals lies at the heart of the Collaborative. Partners in the Collaborative are focused on advancing the knowledge and skills of child welfare workers, supervisors, foster parents, and other invested professionals.
The field of child welfare has long recognized the importance of a well-educated child welfare workforce. Collaborative partners from nine Minnesota institutions of higher learning are committed to providing robust, targeted education to support the safety and well-being of children and families.
