Human Services Students Provide Holiday Gifts for Teens

Nash Community College’s Human Services Technology program partnered with Nash County Department of Social Services again this year for a service project where students each adopted a teen in foster care for Christmas.

“Our students generously went above and beyond to ensure that every single item on the teens’ wish lists were not only met but our students really exceeded the teens’ wishes,” Instructor Jennifer Walston said. “This is an excellent way to give back to our community and learn more about the needs of individuals our students will potentially serve when they enter the human services field.”

The Human Services Technology curriculum prepares students for positions in institutions and agencies providing social, community and educational services. Along with core courses, students take courses that prepare them for specialization in specific human service areas. Fieldwork experience provides opportunities for the application of knowledge and skills learned in the classroom. Graduates qualify for positions in mental health, child care, family services, social services, rehabilitation, correction and educational agencies, or may choose to continue their education in a transfer program at senior public and private institutions.

NCC is now registering for the spring semester. Classes begin on January 10. For more information about enrollment, please email
