George Williams Young Men’s Christian Association,
Historical development of human services agencies consider any number of human services agencies that got their start from an individual with a passion to help others, solve a problem, or to create something unique. Check out the Extra Mile, the Points of Light Pathway in Washington, D.C. to find 33 American individuals who selflessly helped others and created new organizations, establishing new ways of thinking and new services for all of us. Choose one individual and write about their service and leadership. What organization did they found? What management and leadership principles helped to develop that organization? Is it still offering services today?
