Social Work Student Association (SWSA)

Attention BSW students, here is an amazing opportunity to gain insight as well as a chance to put what you've been learning in the classroom into practice. This opportunity involves being a part of York University's Social Work Student Association otherwise known as SWSA. (SWSA on YU Connect)

What is SWSA?

It’s a platform which allows all who participate to voice their opinions, provide and receive support for success, to have fun, and to raise questions that we as BSW students have regarding our Program.

In other words, SWSA is a valuable resource for BSW students. SWSA promotes all Social Work values with an emphasis on empowerment and understanding. You also get experience with the Committees in the School of Social Work.

Being involved in SWSA as an Executive Member, a Volunteer or simply a member also opens remarkable opportunities for those who participate and is also a great networking platform for now and the future.

Meet the 2018-2020 SWSA Team!
