The William S. Richardson School of Law on the UH Manoa campus proudly announces the final presentation and celebration of the Child Welfare Clinic in Classroom 2 on Wednesday, April 29, 2009, at 5:15 p.m.

The Child Welfare Clinic is a groundbreaking collaboration among the UH Manoa Schools of Education, Nursing, Social Work and Law. In addition to class work, the student team has pursued an interdisciplinary project with the goal of making a real difference in the lives of young people. The current project focuses on the Youth Outreach program. Past class projects include contributing to a runaway prevention curriculum for foster youth, piloting an afterschool art and music program for recent immigrant students from Micronesia, and developing a presentation to educate faculty about teen partner violence.

This event celebrates how the course is helping to prepare students in the fields of Education, Nursing, Social Work and Law to better understand each other, to effectively work together, and to take innovative action to improve the lives of young people in Hawaii.The event is free and open to the public.
