|With Fanshawe's Child and Youth Care diploma program, you'll learn a broad range of skills that will enable you to positively affect the lives of those in society who are the most vulnerable.
You'll learn from veteran instructors about family issues and children's emotional and behavioural challenges. In this child and youth care program, you'll learn about special education and assistive technology. You'll develop cutting-edge counselling skills, examine child abuse and neglect, mental health issues, familial structures, psychotherapy techniques, and many other child-centred issues and concerns. When you graduate with a Child and Youth Care diploma, you'll have a dynamic and evolving range of skills that will allow you to work in a number of different fields such as group homes, correctional services, residential treatment centres, children's aid societies, boards of education, community resource centres and hospitals
