At 37, second-year Graduate School of Social Work (GSSW) student Carla Giglio has only begun her journey. Going forward, a huge part of that will involve helping individuals who are finally coming home from tours of duty overseas. Last spring, the lifelong Queens resident took a several-months break from school and enlisted in the U.S. Navy, completing boot camp shortly thereafter. This fall, she’ll be among the lucky few GSSW participants in a new Touro scholarship initiative that offers hands-on experience rehabilitating returned combat soldiers. It will be plenty to juggle for the active Naval Reservist and part-time student (Giglio completes reserve training one weekend a month while taking classes) but it also presents a singular opportunity to advance her qualifications as a social worker looking to heal veterans.

And down a long corridor, behind closed doors, nine seniors are actively engaged in lively discussions on current events.

On any given day, she can be helping determine a course of rehabilitative treatment for ex-convicts (an extension of her B.A. from Rutgers in Psychology and Criminal Justice) or scheduling appointment times for radiation treatments, all while hitting the books en route to her master\'s.

New York State’s BOCES (Boards of Cooperative Educational Services) program has been around for nearly seven decades. The organization’s stated goal has always been to “provide shared educational programs and services to school districts within the state,” but at times its services have been misinterpreted as an alternative classroom environment for “bad” or “trouble” kids who don’t fit in with mainstream public schools.
