Effective January 2015, all social workers that practice in New York State are required to earn 36 units of Continuing Education in order to renew their licenses.

Exciting news: The boards of the Samuel Field Y in Little Neck and the Central Queens Y in Forest Hills have approved the merger of the two agencies, a process that will unfold over the coming months. As you may know, over the past seven years the Samuel Field Y and the Central Queens Y have been jointly managed and have worked closely together to deliver programs and services to our communities. The result: both agencies are stronger and our programs are too. We are excited about the potential to strengthen our work in service to our communities! See more here:
