The meaningful relationships created in this program will help prepare students for a successful future and leave a lasting impact on the Ohio State and social work communities. Apply to become a CSW SAME Mentee by Oct. 1.
“I had the privilege to be paired with an impressive young woman who was an absolute delight to interact with and to explore issues of practice, professional development, and social work values that were of mutual interest. I also appreciated the opportunity to meet and converse with other mentors and to share our experience of the program and our mentees with one another.”
