The 21st century is not only an age of technologies; it is also an age of services. It is an age where social work remains of high relevance, as human contact and human support cannot be replaced by machines. If you are eager to reinforce your values, show the kindness of your heart, if you care about the well-being of society, or if you are keen on volunteering, social work is a profession for you.
