Family Community and Consumer Services Pathway

This pathway focuses on careers relating to meeting the essential needs of people, especially occupations which focus on relationships between and among family members including family counseling, marriage therapy, non-profit management and other occupations related to helping others. This pathway is unique in that the entire human condition is reviewed. This is based on the philosophy that no one topic is stand alone, but rather needs to be studied together just as people interact with society on a daily basis and function in the world. The coursework addresses knowledge and skills in a range to topics from nutrition and wellness and family studies to consumer and personal finance and human growth and development. A strong tie to service leadership is part of this pathway which enhances empathy and caring, two traits important to this cluster area.
