Social Work Student Achievements
SOCIAL WORK PHI ALPHA SERVICE PROJECT
This past fall semester, the Kutztown University Mu Gamma Chapter of Phi Alpha (the National Honor Society of Social Work Scholars) lived up to the Phi Alpha slogan of “Through Knowledge-The Challenge to Serve.” Chapter members volunteered to “adopt” an underserved fifth grade classroom in the Allentown School District and assisted students with researching their country of origin. The students made posters of their research to share with family members and the entire school at their International Day Celebration. Phi Alpha members are looking to sustain this mentoring/support effort as it is well received by the students and teachers.
