Social Work Club
Cabrini's Social Work Club is open to all social work majors. This campus group organizes activities and events for community service, fundraising and the social work department.
Social work club promotes an active role in social justice and social work fields through community service on-campus and off-campus.
It provides a social support for social work majors and non-majors alike. It is a hands-on opportunity to lend a helping hand to our fellow students and to our community.
Social work students have organized a volunteer program with Family House in Norristown, a drug-addiction–treatment center.
Students also have created a mentoring program where new social work majors can learn from a student who has been a social work major for at least one academic year. This mentoring program enhances student communication, sharing of information and experiences and support.
