Strategic Plan

Child Welfare Academy in Alaska

Our strategic plan is to be the “go to” agency for any professional from any discipline who shares the Office of Children’s Services vision of “Safe Children, Strong Families.” Our ”curricular array” offers a broad spectrum of trainings. We emphasize family centered practice to encourage collaboration with families, tribes, communities, or any professional who share the responsibility of keeping children safe and families strong in Alaska.
