Child Welfare Academy


The Child Welfare Academy (CWA) trains and develops professional workers who work with Alaska children and families to assure children are safe and families are strong. CWA strives to be the training facility for Alaska social workers and child welfare professionals. Earlier this year CWA underwent a name change from the Family and Youth Services Training Academy (FYSTA) to the Child Welfare Academy in order to better represent CWA’s commitment to new innovations in training, curriculum, and staff.
