Adults and Aging Program

The mission of CalSWEC’s Adults and Aging Program is to increase California’s investment in Adults and Aging services workforce development, in order to achieve better outcomes for disabled and older adults. 

Developed as the Aging Initiative through a series of meetings and summits held by CalSWEC stakeholders, the Adults and Aging Program has worked with MSW programs and with Adults and Aging Services units around the state to facilitate the sharing of knowledge and skills across systems for over ten years. 

Adults and Aging Program activities now include a funded training program for MSW students and two workforce development evaluation projects, as well as the development of curriculum competencies, materials, and resources focused on adults and aging services as a field of practice, for use by MSW programs throughout the state.
