Do you have the desire to make a positive impact in the lives of children, adolescents, and families? Are you patient, a good listener and communicator, and accepting of world views different from your own? A career in school counseling may be what you're looking for.
You may be wondering, though, how do I get started? First, you'll need to decide which path you'd like to pursue. Two common career paths in this field are School Counselor and School Adjustment Counselor. And, depending on the one you choose, you'll have different requirements to become licensed.
