Exploring This Job

To get an idea of the requirements of human service, volunteer your time to a local human services agency or institution. Church organizations also involve young people in volunteer work, as do the Red Cross, the Boy Scouts, and the Girl Scouts. Volunteer work can include reading to blind or elderly people and visiting nursing homes and halfway homes. You might get involved in organizing group recreation programs at the YMCA or YWCA or performing light clerical duties in an office. You can also encourage any high school organizations to which you belong to become actively involved in charity work.
