Description

Students in Lambton College's Social Service Worker program will develop the skills, knowledge, and values required to support diverse individuals, families, groups and communities. With practical experience both in and out of the classroom, as well as through ongoing reflective practice, students will develop the skills to assist in empowering clients to learn to help themselves and to face the challenging work of being a Social Service Worker. This program demands a special level of maturity and self-awareness. Small class sizes, technology in the classroom, role-play and simulation exercises as well as a variety of personal, hands-on experiences, will result in a deeper understanding of self, which ultimately benefits clients.

Students will complete approximately 650 hours of supervised field placement while in the program. An additional 60+ hours of volunteer work in the community is required over the course of the program. Students' theoretical and practical experience will be enhanced by group work, leadership and participation in a community project that is determined by a real social issue that benefits a non-profit community organization in the Sarnia-Lambton area.
