Rutgers School of Social Work’s Institute for Families will train a delegation of 25 senior executives and leaders from China as part of its Nongovernment Organization Leadership (NGO) program. This training program will expose leaders to the essential skills and knowledge required to successfully lead NGOs. Trainees will learn from experienced leaders how to help an organization achieve its mission through proven management practices.
A second Chinese delegation will celebrate the first anniversary of the establishment of the Huamin Research Center (HRC) at the School of Social Work.
Andy Germack, executive director, Institute of Families at Rutgers School of Social Work, will lead the training effort. Visitors will tour NGOs and hear presentations by Rutgers faculty and Commissioners Allison Blake, New Jersey Department of Children and Families, and Jennifer Velez, New Jersey Department of Human Services, among others.
The second Chinese delegation includes Dr. Dehzi Lu, who provided a major gift from the Huamin Charity Foundation, one of China’s largest privately funded charitable organizations.

As China seeks to expand its social sector and develop its existing programs, Rutgers School of Social Work has been at the forefront of developing a new range of institutional and governmental partnerships. The Institute for Families at the Rutgers School of Social Work has a long history of building the capacity of human service organizations and professionals. Rutgers is one of the few U.S. universities recently authorized by the State Administration of Foreign Expert Affairs to conduct training for Chinese government personnel.
