By integrating knowledge of financial capability building into professional practice, social workers will be empowered to guide and support low-income vulnerable families to make informed decisions that will heighten their potential for positive change in their family situations. The intern will assist the Principal Investigator (PI) of the initiative in drafting the Singapore FCAB curriculum.
