1965–1985: Careers in Social Work

The Junior League of Toledo offered scholarships to recruit potential professionals as graduate students and provided a speaker’s bureau to inform high school students of possible careers in social work. Mrs. Lou Ann Tobler was the first coordinator of a paid internship program for junior and senior college students for six weeks in the summer in a local social work agency. The purpose of this three year program funded by the Junior League of Toledo was to attract people into the field of social work.
