MJC having information night on human services studies and careers

Bee staff reportsDecember 27, 2013 

Modesto Junior College will showcase its studies in human services from 6 to 8 p.m. Jan. 9 in the Forum Building, Room 110, on the east campus at 435 College Ave. The community event is free.

The Human Services Program Spring 2014 Orientation will highlight the degrees, certificates of achievement and skills recognition awards available to students in human services, chemical dependency counseling, psychosocial rehabilitation and gerontology, the study of aging.

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 be certified as psychosocial rehabilitation practitioners.

Representatives from Stanislaus County, behavioral health care, chemical dependency counseling, children and family services, as well as many other interrelated fields, will participate, offering information about volunteer or internship opportunities and the services they provide.

For more on the orientation, call Kimberly Kennard at (209) 575-6864.
