We hope you will join with students and professionals from around the state for one of our scheduled LEAD Days.  The LEAD Intensive Training days consist of groups of students spending the morning learning about the legislative process and specific legislation that is being considered by the Indiana General Assembly.  
The training will include information on how to get around the Indiana State House, along with information on issues that NASW Indiana is tracking as well as legislation that partner organizations are following. The afternoon will focus on applying that knowledge hands-on as we head to the Indiana Statehouse to actively create change.  Individuals as well as classes are welcome to attend, but space is limited. See below for dates, and if your school or program has already reserved a date:

Please contact us at 317-923-9878 or for school, group, and individual scheduling.  Our dates tend to book up early, so reserve you spot as soon as possible. We are excited for another great set of trainings!
