Public Service Announcements

Public Service Announcements, or PSAs, are a great way to raise awareness about the rewarding career potential Direct Support Professionals (DSPs) can enjoy by working with your agency.

At the same time, creating a PSA can be a time- and resource-intensive process. Therefore, we’ve done the work for you by creating three PSAs that users of this DSP Toolkit can use for free in their awareness-raising effors. Check out the video playlist below to view these public services announcements.

Want to use one or more of these video PSAs in your outreach materials? Download each video file individually using this Dropbox folder.
