Due to COVID-19, the 2020 NSEP Academy will not be hosted at The University of Alabama.
We are hopeful to resume programming Summer 2021. Stay tuned for updates.


A key purpose of NSEP is to expose youth to the field of social work as a college major and career choice.


A second key purpose of NSEP is to encourage youth to complete high school, enroll in college and complete their post-secondary education.


A third key purpose of NSEP is to assist foster youth in the development of life-skills, employment skills, and leadership skills that will help them to achieve their personal and professional goals.

NSEP featured in School of Social Work Outreach Magazine
