If you are driven to make a difference in society, you can start a new career helping at-risk youth thrive. Get all of the skills and knowledge you need to enter this challenging and rewarding field in the Child and Youth Services Worker diploma program.
In this unique program, delivered through a combination of online discussions and in-class assignments, you'll learn from experienced instructors and interact with fellow students. Through this flexible blend of virtual and on-campus learning, you'll gain a solid understanding of poverty, mental health, addiction, psychology, ethics, and other fundamental topics.
Divided into two main parts, the program first focuses on community services worker issues, then moves on to child and youth services. Once you complete this relevant and focused training, you'll have the qualifications to confidently work under the supervision of professional counsellors to address a range of youth issues.
The Child and Youth Services Worker program provides a learning experience that will enable you to get all the benefits of learning in class while also saving time. By not having to commute to campus as often, you'll be able to better-plan study time around your schedule.
