Do you know someone who's taken the Community Services Worker (CSW) program at Herzing? Just mention the name Bryan Coker. You'll see their eyes light up right away.
Bryan's been teaching the CSW program for 10 years and is absolutely beloved among students and graduates.
His unique background as a pastor, social worker, community organizer, and counsellor helps him connect with people in a very unique way.
Bryan's teaching style goes far beyond the "mechanics" of social work and community services.
He helps students reflect on their own lives and struggles, and cultivate their own unique approach as counsellors.
Bryan says students leave his class "with a changed heart", open and ready to assist others.
They walk away with the mindset, tools, and knowledge required to make real change in their own communities. From what graduates tell us, it's a pretty transformative experience!
Are you considering a career in social services? Wondering what to expect from community support worker training?
