Education for Volunteer Participation in Social Work

By Lilly B. Essin

Jewish Communal Service Association of North America (JCSA), National Conference of Jewish Social Welfare, March 1947

One of the most challenging tasks facing social work today is that of interpreting itself to the lay community which supports it, and from which come both the volunteers who assist in its program and the clientele who use the service. Opportunities for such interpretation are sought for constantly, and when they occur, every skill is brought to bear in making the most of the occasion. The piece highlights the experience of the Jewish Family Service Association of Cleveland which has been extremely fortunate in being able to extend the education of the community through its leadership and participation in setting up a training course for volunteers.
