There are few professions in which you can make real changes in someone’s life. Working in community corrections means you care about others, your community as well as the well-being of your clients’ families. Think about how good it feels when someone who has been under supervision makes the right choices and goes on to finish a degree or gets a great job. The decisions you make every day are changing people’s lives. Be the CHANGE in your community, be proud of what you have accomplished and what promises the future holds for your career! APPA hopes you take some time now and especially during the week of July 13-19 to feel proud of the profession you’ve chosen and celebrate your accomplishments.
