Description:Are you a caring and empathetic individual looking to make a difference in your community and society? Your future should be in community support-based work. Train to effectively promote the mental, physical and emotional health of people with specialized needs so that they may live as fully and independently as possible.

Community Support Workers assist people with learning disabilities, physical challenges or other special needs, along with their families. They model, teach and support all functions of home life, daily living activities, leisure and recreation leading to an improved quality of life and greater self-reliance for people with specialized needs. Community Support Workers also build community relationships (i.e. networking with employers) so that they may encourage people with developmental disabilities in their career discovery process. Furthering employment options for those they work with, Community Support Workers also build training plans and provide direct support within the workplace.
