The Roots of Social Work Education

In 1897, at a conference of Charities and Correction in Toronto, Mary Richmond, delivered a paper titled “The Need for a Training School of Applied Philanthropy”1. In this presentation, she stated that if those doing social work were to become an effective force in the solution of social problems and the development of community organizations, there was a need for an educational system specifically for social workers.
