Human Services

  • Human Services Class It takes a special kind of person to work in human services. They are motivated by the desire to assist others. Psychologists, therapists, counselors, social workers, health aides, cosmetologists, financial planners, clergy members, and many others tend to the physical, mental, and spiritual needs of the people they serve. They offer helping hands to everyone from babies in child-care centers to seniors in long-term care facilities. The work is sometimes challenging, but the reward of knowing that you have improved someone's life is immense. If you feel a calling to serve your fellow man, feel comfortable caring for people, or if you want to improve your community, then Human Services could be the right career cluster for you.
