Human Services Pathway

Available for 11th & 12th Graders

Overview

The Human Services Program prepares students for careers in the helping professions. We train students to work in Social Services Agencies; helping others overcome social barriers, such as poverty, abuse, addiction, oppression and mental health challenges.

Qualities of an Human Services Student

  1. Students who are interested in people’s stories
  2. Students who are curious about people’s behaviors
  3. Students who want to help people overcome social barriers
  4. Students who see injustice and want to change it
  5. Students who care about people and what happens to them are open-minded and accepting of differences

Pathway Connections: Possible Next Steps

You will begin preparing to be an innovative leader in the community who provides direct supportive services promoting diversity, self-awareness and social justice. Students will easily slide into the Human Services program at SCC to continue work towards an Associate Degree. Students will then have the opportunity to move directly into the career path (possible careers: counselor, family advocate, case manager to name just a few). Another option would be to transfer to a 4 year college/university to work towards a Bachelors degree.
