The Wagner Paraprofessional Certificate Program is an intensive two-year certificate program which trains human service workers to help children, adolescents, and adults in a variety of settings including schools, hospital, counseling centers, and community agencies. The program requires a two-year commitment of one full day per week for 30 weeks each year. In addition, during the second year students are required to do field work. Participants will be prepared to work as volunteer paraprofessionals, under the direction of professional staff in various community organizations, congregations, and agencies.
Students in the program will be trained to work with individuals, couples, families, and groups in a variety of situations such as:
Marital relationships including intermarriage, blended families, and single parenting
Health and aging issues
Bereavement, death, and dying
Graduates of the Human Services Paraprofessional Certificate Program make a commitment of two years of community service.
