Wondering why you should join NASW as a student member? Is it worth the investment?
Student membership gives you unparalleled access to your future colleagues from across the state and nation. You can connect with them in person at events, join mentoring programs, search our directory of job opportunities, and connect virtually with colleagues from across the nation via the myNASW online community. As a member of NASW-RI, you will be able to have opportunities to take advantage of career services, build your leadership skills through member groups and committees, and develop relationships that will propel your career. Student members also receive free social work graduation cords for your special day. 2022 Graduates: Sign up for your grad cord by April 1st, 2022 here! Note, you must be graduating BSW or MSW student and a member of the NASW-RI.
Need more of an incentive? When you join as a student, you lock-in a transition rate post-graduation to gradually transition to the full membership rate because we understand the first few years can be financially tricky.
NASW-RI Student Leaders
Join our Student Engagement Committee! Students from Providence College, Rhode Island College, and Salve Regina University Social Work Programs have all come together to work with NASW-RI . Our purpose of this committee is to engage BSW and MSW Social Work Students in defining and structuring meaningful opportunities to address critical clinical and social justice issues. Join this committee so you can be ready to enter the field as a Social Worker who advocates for and responds to clinical and system issues of importance to our profession and those we serve.
