Sorry, the correct answer is
All of the above.
The workforce comprises all persons in paid positions of any kind – whether they receive salaries, wages, or stipends – who are engaged in any aspect of service or support to children, youth, or families. It also includes unpaid volunteers and interns working in organizations.
Traditionally, the child welfare “workforce” has included people employed by public child welfare agencies and staff working for contracted providers and partner organizations. In the context of CWLA’s newest Standard of Excellence, the National Blueprint, the workforce is considered broader and includes people who may not think of themselves as child welfare workers.
So,the workforce consists of competent skilled people with a variety of experiences and representing varied disciplines. They should be committed to high quality service delivery and provided with the training, tools, resources, and support necessary to perform their roles effectively.
Every response counts!

This is the second in a series of quiz questions related to The CWLA National Blueprint's vision, principles and guidance for the future of child welfare. The CWLA National Blueprint is a new set of overarching standards for all individuals, organizations, and communities that unify the existing programmatic CWLA Standards of Excellence. The CWLA National Blueprint recognizes that responsibility for the well-being of children and youth begins with their families, and extends beyond traditional child welfare organizations and services. Everyone—families, communities, providers, and organizations—has a responsibility for ensuring the safety, permanency and well-being of all children and youth. The document raises the bar for everyone caring for and about children and youth. It is intended to be a foundation upon which families, communities, providers, and other organizations can create the greatest opportunities for all children and youth to succeed and flourish.
The CWLA National Blueprint for Excellence in Child Welfare will be released during CWLA's upcoming annual conference on April 14-17th, and inspires the conference theme, Making Children and Families a Priority: Raising the Bar.
