Child Welfare Title IV-E Educational Partnership

Plymouth State University and the New Hampshire Division of Children, Youth, and Families have had a partnership since 2000 to provide child welfare education and training to a selected group of social work undergraduate students. This partnership project is grant funded through the Division of Children, Youth, and Families (DCYF) of the New Hampshire Department of Health and Human Services. This is made possible through Title IV-E funding authorized by the Social Security Act.  Plymouth State University matches the funding provided through the DCYF grant.

The project provides:

  • Educational preparation for child welfare practice for B.S.W. students
  • 450-hour social work practicum in a New Hampshire DCYF district office
  • Participation in DCYF trainings and conferences
  • Specialized practicum seminar for student interns in a DCYF practicum placement
