Hello fellow FCS educator!


For those of you who teach Principles of Human Services you know just how fun this class is! I love that we get to expose our students to a variety of careers that strive to serve and educate those in our community. With this resource, students will be able to investigate career options that fall within the family & community services spectrum.


Careers Include:


  • Caseworker or Case Manager
  • Certified Health Coach
  • Community Health Worker
  • Development Director
  • Development Officer
  • Disaster Relief Worker
  • Emergency Relief Worker
  • Executive Director
  • Firefighter
  • Program Director
  • School Social Worker
  • Social & Human Services Assistant
  • Social Worker
  • Volunteer Coordinator
  • Wellness Coach


For my Texas teachers, this covers TEK 6 (I):  identify employment and entrepreneurial opportunities and preparation requirements in the areas of personal interest. If you have access to textbooks, I highly recommend using Goodheart-Willcox's Principles of Human Services by Sharleen L. Kato.


If you don't have a textbook for this class or would rather go digital, the following website works perfectly with this investigation:


O Net Online


For an extension activity, you can group your students and have them create infographics based on the investigation information.



❤️ You will LOVE using this lesson because of how seamless and easy it is to implement - it's ready to teach! Your students will also appreciate the opportunity to discover and learn more about career options available to them within the family & community services sector.
