The purpose of the Human Development and Family Studies Affiliate Program Group (HDFS APG) is to serve the needs of HDFS alumni, students, and faculty; advocate, promote, and support professional development; and assist the College and University in enhancing the quality and visibility of the HDFS program.

We hope you find the information on this site to be useful and in line with the type of services the HDFS APG can provide. We certainly welcome your feedback and ideas for changes. We look forward to expanding the HDFS APG by connecting the thousands of alumni who have graduated with an education from HDFS. In addition, we hope to develop a network of alumni to participate in assisting with the education of current undergraduate and graduate students by providing career mentorship, intellectual networking, and possible internship experiences.

We encourage you to continue your support for the HDFS APG, the College of Health and Human Development, and Penn State.
