Introduction to Family and Human Services
The focus of Introduction to Family and Human Services is to identify professional opportunities within the Human Services career cluster. Students will use practical problem solving, research, critical thinking, and career decision making to investigate services for clients as well as family and social services to preserve, promote, and protect public health. Students will assess the needs of clients, determine the support needed, and demonstrate human services career skills. Contextual instruction and student participation in co-curricular career and technical student organization (CTSO) activities will develop leadership, interpersonal, and career skills. High-quality work-based learning (HQWBL) will provide experiential learning opportunities related to students' career goals and/or interests, integrated with instruction, and performed in partnership with local businesses and organizations.
