       NC Child Welfare Education Collaborative
The North Carolina Child Welfare Education Collaborative (NC-CWEC) is a unique, statewide partnership focused on improving child welfare services in North Carolina. Established in 1999, the Collaborative is administered by the Jordan Institute for Families and is a joint effort of the NC Division of Social Services, the North Carolina Association of County Directors of Social Services, the North Carolina Chapter of the National Association of Social Workers. As it aims to counter high attrition rates, the Collaborative promotes excellence and leadership in child welfare through education, research and curriculum development.
Emphasizing public child welfare practice, the Collaborative provides educational opportunities and financial support to social work students who commit to employment in a North Carolina county department of social service. The specific amount of financial support offered is based on the student's degree program, part-time or full-time status, and several other factors.
