  • What I Actually Do - Human Services Thumb

    The human services field offers a variety of career options that involve having a deep compassion for helping those in our communities. This vignette gives a snapshot of the common misconceptions associated with a career in adoptive services. It’s more than just finding children a place to live, its keeping them safe and being their biggest advocate. 

    In our “What I Actually Do: Human Services” video, we highlight some of the common misconceptions that different people have about people who work in the human services field. In the end we show you an example of the great work that people in the field do every day. 

    People working in the human services field help improve people’s lives and serve as advocates for those in need. For example, child welfare workers or child advocates in human services ensure that children are safe and have supportive parents and a stable home. Working with children is a job takes passion and compassion. When people’s safety and well-being are at risk, professionals in the human services field work to improve their lives.

    At Kaplan University, we are committed to helping students develop the skills relevant to today's workplace. Our degrees in human services are designed to offer interactive learning opportunities that could help prepare you to pursue a career in human services or enhance your skills within the field.* After watching the video we ask the following question: What do you want to do?
