When you enrol in the Child and Youth Care Program, you will complete a comprehensive course of study, with 600 hours of class time and 150 hours of practical training in a designated child or youth setting. You will learn important aspects of normative and non-normative development as you focus on treatment and prevention modalities for at-risk children and youth.
You receive individualized service, and specialized training as a result of our small class sizes. You will be in a friendly, supportive learning environment with trained personable support staff to offer assistance.
Your program will have emphasis on five important areas in child and youth care: Developmental Psychology, Counselling Strategies, Professional Practice, Support Modalities and Practical Experience. In each course, you will receive knowledge-based education and mentorship from your experienced, qualified instructors.
When you graduate from the Child and Youth Care Program, you will demonstrate competence in intervention, communication, activity planning, and cultural diversity. You can then go on to find employment in a variety of settings including youth drop-in centres, alternate, mainstream, and after-school programs, alcohol and drug prevention programs, youth at-risk and outreach programs, teen pregnancy centres, special needs programs, counselling service providers, and other places of employment that provide services for children and youth.
After your 4 week practicum, you receive career preparation to help you with your resume and interview skills. We know this program will work for you, as it has for the 93.87% of MTI grads that got employed last year!
