Tevin Jackson, MSW. I graduated from Indiana University Bloomington in 2017 with a bachelor’s in social work and 2018 with my master’s in social work. I feel like I have been a social worker my whole life but not in the terms of therapy but mentor young men who look like me with similar upbringing. I currently work at CAPS providing individual counseling.
I think that social work ultimately chose me. I think it was just a match based on what my passion and goal in life to help black and brown men and women. Right now, I am using my degree to provide counseling to IUB students. I currently work for CAPS located here on the Bloomington campus.
I am still discovering the benefits of being a social worker. I do get an employee discount with parking passes since I work for IU lol.
I think a good accomplishment right now is the You Good? that Rory, Dennis, and myself has started. We have received a lot of love and praise for this due to it being long overdue need. Accomplishments are not something I keep track of to be honest I just aim to make someone’s day whether that is with a laugh, compliment, hug, lunch, opening the door, etc. I am a simple person honestly.
