Who We Are
Our team is compromised of students, faculty, and staff who strives to support FUEL NKU programs and services.

 
Our Practicum Students
FUEL NKU offers a fun and independent yet structured opportunity for social work students to learn how to create change in the community through practicum placement. Practicum students provide basic nutritional assistance and other useful items to students in a compassionate, confidential and safe environment that aligns with core social work values and ethics. Using best practices, students in this practicum placement will gain experience with case management, volunteer recruitment and management, community engagement, marketing, and research.
