Human Services: Intro to Human Services APA Project Guide

Resources, information, and tutorials to support the Intro to Human Services APA project.

While large, extended assignments can feel daunting, your best bet is to break it down into manageable steps. Tackle one step at a time, keep moving forward, and reach out for help if you need it!
