Who We Are
The School Social Work Program is a successful partnership between YES Community Counseling Center and our partner school districts. Through funding provided by the district, social workers and master level social work interns are placed within the elementary school buildings to provide social work services that are supervised by YES.
Individual and group support services are provided on a short-term basis when emotional or environmental issues are impacting upon academic or social performance within the school building. When working with individual students and families, the role of The School Social Worker/Intern is to identify issues that exist, assess needs, and provide an appropriate referral to the student and family.
