Connect with at risk youth and children. Learn how to support them and their families.
Lakeland provides real world learning with 4 practicum placements in your 2-year program. You'll be placed at an agency, organization or school 5 days a week for 4 weeks.
You might even do that practicum in an international location. Every other year you could broaden your perspective by working in a different country and culture.
