According to the 2018-2019 Occupational Outlook Handbook, “employment of social and community service managers is projected to grow 18 percent from 2016 to 2026, much faster than the average for all occupations. Employment growth will be driven by increases in the elderly population and increases in demand for substance abuse treatment and mental health and health-related services. Social and community service managers typically need at least a bachelor’s degree and work experience. Social and community service managers work for nonprofit organizations, private for-profit social service companies, and government agencies. The majority work full time.”
