Employment of social and human service workers is projected to grow 13% from 2018 to 2028. A growing elderly population and rising demand for social services are expected to drive demand for these workers. Job opportunities are expected to be exceptionally good. WCCC’s Health and Human Services track allows learners to obtain stackable credentials to prepare them for various levels of employment within the industry. Perhaps one of the strongest pieces of the programming is the connection to a large network of partner social service agencies who provide hands-on, practical approaches and experiential learning opportunities, as well as advisory resources and awesome employment opportunities!
