DescriptionBay River College's two-year Community Support Worker diploma program is designed for individuals seeking for the knowledge and skills to get able to join the field of social services and draws upon the principles of sociology, psychology, and other social sciences to counsel and assist individuals and their families in understanding and resolving personal and social conflicts.

Part of the program will focus on understanding multicultural backgrounds, disabilities, gender, sexual orientation, family issues and substance abuse. From there, students learn how to create and maintain helpful relationships through effective communication and interactive skills. They will be equipped to assess individual, family, group or community needs; set goals and develop appropriate intervention methods; implement strategies to increase clients' problem-solving abilities as well as identify and mobilize community resources relevant to client needs.
