Contra Costa Training Project

The Bay Area Academy has a county-specific contract with Contra Costa County Child Welfare to provide professional development services to the county’s public child welfare social workers, public health nurses, foster care providers, and appropriate community service providers working in or with the public child welfare system. The Bay Area Academy works closely with the Child Welfare staff development team to develop trainings and other events specifically designed to meet the needs of the County of Contra Costa. This project develops learning opportunities that enhance cultural awareness, developed advanced skills for workers, especially regarding permanency for children and youth, and provides resources for new worker training.
