When you enrol in the Community Support & Youth Worker Program, you will complete a comprehensive course of study that includes over 900 hours of class time and two practical training sessions. 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, and youth and adults with special needs.
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: Developmental Psychology, Professional Practice, Support Modalities, Personal Care Skills, and Practical Experience. In each course, you will receive knowledge-based education and mentorship from your experienced, qualified instructors.
