Child Welfare Certificate

Be a child advocate

Our child welfare certificate is developed around preparing you to become an effective advocate for children as victims and survivors of child abuse. The coursework within this program will increase your understanding of factors that lead to child maltreatment, as well as how to work effectively in various agencies and systems to respond to such incidents. You may want to add a child welfare certificate if you are interested in areas such as child protective services, foster care, or adoption.
