Hi Bobbi,
What level of schooling are you currently at? A great thing to do is to volunteer with any populations of interest you have. Just interacting with people in different settings can really help you consider if that is a group of people you would like to work with (domestic violence shelters, nonprofit agencies for refugees, assisted living, etc.) Volunteering at a nonprofit is a great avenue to gain experience in serving others.

I suggest you look at what public member seats are vacant on professional licensing boards for your state. You can serve on a board and learn about the profession and how the license protects the public. You meet professionals and learn about relevant laws.
