The free event showcases the degrees, certificates of achievement and skills recognition awards available to students in human services, chemical dependency counseling, psychosocial rehabilitation and gerontology. MJC’s chemical dependency counseling program meets the educational requirements necessary to take California’s Department of Alcohol and Drug Program’s state licensing exam. Additionally, the nine-unit skills recognition award in psychosocial rehabilitation allows students to become eligible to sit for the state exam to become certified as psychosocial rehabilitation practitioners. Several local human services organizations will participate in the orientation. Representatives from Stanislaus County, behavioral health care, chemical dependency counseling, children and family services, and other related fields will provide information about volunteer or internship opportunities and the services that they provide for individuals, families, groups and the community at large.
