The Alliance’s vision is to work toward a world where a well-planned, well-trained, and well-supported social service workforce effectively delivers services that improve the lives of vulnerable populations. In short, its aim is: improve the workforce, improve lives.
To realize this vision, the Alliance seeks members to join and to engage with leaders and colleagues to help strengthen the workforce through advancing knowledge, exploring shared issues and promising practices, and becoming strong advocates. In practice, this means:
- Connecting with others facing similar challenges
- Contributing your best ideas and best practices to address these challenges
- Learning about creative initiatives being undertaken by others
- Joining with others to advocate for needed changes and resources at both the global and country levels
- Being part of a global movement to strengthen this key workforce
- Increasing your impact, amplifying your voice.
