The NASW-NYC CARES Member Ambassador (MA) Program



This program identifies students from accredited schools of social work within New York City who will serve as liaisons between their respective programs and the NASW-NYC Chapter. As links between the Chapter and their respective schools, the primary roles of Member Ambassadors are to share Chapter and community resources, events, legislative and advocacy matters, educational and continuing education offerings and other pertinent information related to the social work profession with the student body, faculty, and staff of their respective institutions at events hosted at their schools or communities. In addition, Member Ambassadors coordinate one virtual student town hall per semester, aiming to continue engagement with social work students and schools in NYC. 


Serving as a Member Ambassador has several benefits including being able to connect to and network with social workers of all career levels and in different fields of practices. Member Ambassadors may often receive the benefit of free opportunities that aim to support their professional goals, student careers, and personal well-being among other perks and benefits.  A role that can be included in a CV/resume, Member Ambassadors are members of the Chapter’s Membership Recruitment and Retention Committee. Additionally, the Member Ambassador role provides opportunity to utilize and enhance various skills that can serve their career as a social worker.
