Raising the bar of field education.

At The Arthur Project, we are committed to creating a robust field learning experience. Our goals are to simultaneously serve our student population while preparing social work students to become exceptional, strengths-based, anti-oppressive social workers who are equipped to serve clients in a variety of settings.

Social work students at The Arthur Project receive a tremendous amount of individual and group supervision along with ongoing professional development opportunities, all while practicing anti-oppressive clinical skills in a school-based setting.

You can make a difference.
