LAYC was pleased to celebrate the talents and dedication of its social workers during Social Work Month! Over 20 staff are licensed social workers stationed at all of LAYC’s sites and working in all program areas. Their special skills, commitment, and warm smiles make it possible to meet the comprehensive needs of our youth. Please join us in saying, “Thank you!” to our wonderful social workers!
Thank you so much for your hard work and dedication. You are a living example and inspiration of what being a social worker means…
You will never be bored.
You will always be frustrated.
You will be surrounded by challenges.
So much to do and so little time.
You will carry immense responsibility and very little authority.
You will step into people’s lives, and you will make a difference.
Some will bless you.
Some will curse you.
You will see people at their worst…and their best.
You will never cease to be amazed at people’s capacity for love, courage, and endurance.
You will see life begin…and end.
You will experience resounding triumphs and devastating failures.
You will cry a lot.
You will laugh a lot.
You will know what it is to be human and to be humane.
