Social Work & International Emergencies

March 1 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm

Jacqui Stewart Bah’s experience is in responding to international emergencies and thinks this is a great area for social workers to be involved. She will cover how Peace Corps helped her get a start internationally, her personal experience working in an international setting, how students can go abroad with Peace Corps and the importance of having a global mindset.

Jacqui Stewart Bah currently works for the UT International Office as the Peace Corps Campus Recruiter. After completing her undergraduate degree in Sociology from Boston University, Bah joined the Peace Corps and was sent to Guinea, West Africa, an experience that she says absolutely changed her life and the direction of her career. Determined to work internationally after her Peace Corps tour, she returned to the United States to get her Master in International Public Health and Global Social Work from Tulane University. Since getting her master, she has worked mostly in West Africa, except for a quick year and half in Rwanda. Her passion is in creating and implementing holistic psychosocial programming for emergency settings, such as the Ebola outbreak in West Africa and most recently for communities impacted by Boko Haram in Niger. An Austin native, Bah is enjoying being back home and working stateside in her current role at UT Austin.

Sports social work

March 2 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm

“Sport Social Work” by Emmett Gill, MSW, PhD. Register here.

Sport social work has existed since Jane Addams used athletics to help acculturate immigrants into U.S. communities, but only in the last decade has it emerged as one of the most exciting new areas of social work practice. This workshop will introduce participants to current practices in sport social work. Sport social workers now practice in professional sports leagues and at top intercollegiate athletics programs. The presentation will describe models of sport social work, sport social work advocacy and community building, and ways to pursue careers in sport social work. Consideration of characteristics of student athletes and their vulnerabilities, as well as youth vs. college and professional sports issues, will be addressed via case studies and discussion.
