The Human Services faculty at the University of Maine at Augusta (UMA) and University of Maine at Farmington (UMF) who are overseeing the UMA-UMF Human Services Collaborative Training Grant invite you to attend the Pathways to Professions in Human Services free event.

The event will be held at UMA’s Augusta Campus on August 18, 2023 from 8:30 – 1:00 p.m.

The event is for anyone who might be interested in pursuing a professional credential to work in the field of human services. We will have speakers talking about substance use treatment with New Mainers, information on careers as a substance use counselor, and information on careers as an employment specialist.

There will also be information presented on the current grant-funded tuition waivers (up to 50% free tuition) available to students interested in pursuing a college education in one or both of these professional areas at UMA or UMF. This unique collaborative program is made possible thanks to funding from the Maine Jobs & Recovery Plan (MJRP) provided by Governor Mills and the Maine Legislature to the University of Maine System for workforce development. 

Participants are encouraged to attend in person but there will be a virtual option for those who are unable to join us in Augusta. Participants need to register to attend whether they plan to attend in person or virtually.
