|Description:||Help in the healthy development of vulnerable children, youth and families by becoming a positive role model. Working with people in need can be demanding, but you will experience job satisfaction and the rewards are significant. Opportunities for employment include school programs, group homes, treatment centres and community programs.
To become a child and youth care counsellor you need to be strong, emotionally and ethically. The children, youth and families you will work with may have suffered physical, sexual or emotional abuse, neglect and/or family breakdown. Some may also have behavioural or learning difficulties which require your knowledge, skill and support.
