While in the program, students are encouraged to participate in the student organizations as a way of developing their leadership and organizational skills, providing student input regarding the program, and giving back to the community through service activities. Through their participation in the Social Work Organization and the National Association of Black Social Workers - Student Chapter, and Phi Alpha Honor Society for Social Work Students, students have an opportunity to participate in a variety of community projects, events, conferences, career development workshops, humanitarian award festivities, and legislative and judicial processes. For example, these student groups
