Transcript Lerti" -icat: icafion or Life A.H.S.A erican H umanics en ssocia1 If your main mission in life was to help, regardless of the reason, then American Humanics might be a match for you. American Humanics is a national nonprofit organization that prepares and certifies undergraduate and post baccalaureate college students for careers in nonprofit youth and human service organizations. AHSA worked with many local nonprofit organizations so they could offer students an extensive program of academic courses and experimental learning. Some students worked on their AHSA certificates while taking classes for their major, and other students worked on their AH certification after graduating from college. "American Humanics was a stepping stone for me in so many ways and it also worked very well with my career plan," said returning student Aven Coulson, Senior, Human Development. AHSA, offered through the Graduate School of Social Work and headed up by Programs Director Margaret O'Donnell, engaged over 150 students in the American Humanics Nonprofit Certificate Program from the Fall of 2002 to the Fall of 2003. "This is the most fun Fve ever had in my life. I get to come to work and spend time with motivated and dedicated students whose common mission is to make a difference in other peoples' lives through nonprofit work," stated Margaret O'Donnell, Programs Director. For the students involved, AHSA provided an intensive route for them to meet new people, and at the same time remained extremely career development oriented. "Beyond the fact that it was a lot of fun, I would have never found any of these business opportunities unless I was in American Humanics. And in the future, AHSA will only help me find a job," expressed Kate Thrash, Senior, Psychology. Kate received her AH certificate in May of 2003 after starting the program in January of 2002 and interning at the Jung Center. In the fall, American Humanics participated in their annual "Fall Retreat" at a campground in Pumpkin, Texas called Camp Mayhan. Throughout the years, the site has been nicknamed "Camp Mayhem" by the AH students and faculty. "The Boys and Girls Clubs of Greater Houston donated the use of the camp," said Margaret O'Donnell, Programs Director. Other events hosted throughout the year included four workshops during the fall, the May Dinner- "a recognition event," as well as a full day of workshops in November hosted by the Career Development Institute. -Dixie Ann Dalton American humanics members compare notes at an officers meeting in the Spring semester.
