Preparing for a career in human services requires more than textbook reading. Instead, it takes actually getting out into the field — investigating reports of child neglect, organizing programs to educate inmates, supporting the elderly in assisted living facilities and much more.
You can help meet the need for human services workers. Employment is projected to grow 22% from 2012 to 2022, much faster than the average for all occupations. (U.S. Department of Labor “Occupational Outlook Handbook, 2014–2015 Edition”)
