Help NICWA Identify Child Welfare Training Barriers

The National Indian Child Welfare Association (NICWA) is partnering with the Alaska Native Justice Center (ANJC) to conduct a survey of tribal child welfare workers in Alaska. Your anonymous participation in this survey will help identify training needs and barriers that Alaska tribal child welfare workers face. Findings from the survey will support ANJC in tailoring trainings for the Alaska Indian Child Welfare Conference in 2023.


ANJC contracted with NICWA for assistance with conducting a statewide needs assessment survey of tribal child welfare workers. NICWA will conduct the survey and present the findings and recommendations in a written report to ANJC.

What will survey information be used for?

ANJC will use the findings and recommendations to help shape the content of the Alaska Indian Child Welfare Conference in 2023. Identifying information will not be used or stored. All responses are anonymous.

Who should take the survey?

We invite all tribal child welfare workers in Alaska to fill out this survey; this includes tribal family youth service workers, family wellness (prevention) workers, child welfare line workers, supervisors, leads, etc. It’s important that we hear from as many workers as possible to really understand their training needs and preferences. Please take the survey if you’re a tribal child welfare worker. Also, please feel free to forward this to other workers to take the survey.

How to participate:

Take the survey here. The survey will take no more than 15 minutes to complete. Please fill out this survey by November 18, 2022.
