Our Story

Mission: To foster the ethical practice of professional human service workers by designing and distributing relevant educational resources made for and by the community. Standard Four enables the transfer of expertise by elevating the voice of individual human service workers and empowering organizations to develop and distribute quality training materials.


Standard Four LLC is based in Saint Paul, Minnesota. It was formed in 2018 by social worker and training aficionado John Lukach, LGSW. The name is derived from the fourth ethical standard of the National Association of Social Workers’ Code of Ethics which states: 

“Social workers should strive to become and remain proficient in professional practice and the performance of professional functions. Social workers should critically examine and keep current with emerging knowledge relevant to social work. Social workers should routinely review the professional literature and participate in continuing education relevant to social work practice and social work ethics.”
