Youth Case Workers are assigned to individual children or teens, working one-on-one to help improve their quality of life. You’ll need advanced interpersonal skills in communication, deep listening, and counselling to build trust with your clients.
As a Youth Case Worker you could be helping your clients access social security payments, collaborating with the justice system, or just checking on their foster homes and family environment. Youth Case Workers have to keep clients files up-to-date and lodge specific documents with government departments, so you’ll need a good understanding of Australian social welfare systems.
There are 5 courses available for people who want to become a Youth Case Worker.
