For your final project, you will write a reflection paper from the point of view of a human
service professional in his or her last job in the field. You can choose to be a Chief
Executive Officer, or supervisor, or any other job that interests you. The purpose of your
paper is to provide advice for others in your agency who are just beginning their careers
in human services. You will include specific information from your Unit 3 project about
using effective coordination between agencies in the community for service delivery.
You will also describe some of the best methods for providing direct service to clients
using the information from your Unit 6 project. You will describe the importance of
advocating for the needs of the people in your local community (and for the agencies
that serve them).
In the last part of the paper, describe at least two of the most important lessons that you
learned in working with people in all of your human service jobs.
Your project should be between 1800 and 2400 words in length. Make sure that sure
that you follow APA format, use Standard American English, and cite references within
the text of your paper as well as in the reference section. While the text is your main
source for this project, please use the Kaplan Library Academic Search Premier
database to find at least two articles from peer-reviewed journals. You should also use a
minimum of two reliable websites. A good starting point for reliable Internet sources is
our government website at http://www.usa.gov
