Career Opportunities

Today more than 1.5 million nonprofits are serving communities throughout the United States, including 1,600 here in the Greater Grand Rapids area.

As the nonprofit sector grows at twice the rate of the government and private sectors, demand for capable nonprofit professionals increases accordingly and is higher than ever. Each year nearly 30,000 new agencies are established. They offer an estimated 50,000 entry-level professional positions. The Bureau of Labor Statistics estimated that the need for qualified nonprofit professionals would increase significantly over the next several years. As a result of this expansive growth, the demand for candidates to fill professional positions far exceeds the supply of qualified applicants.

Students seeking American Humanics' Certification are eligible to apply for various scholarships and academic awards.
