Youth Support Workers help young people find employment, housing, and education and help them work through a range of social, financial, and emotional problems. You could be checking young people on probation or parole, helping homeless kids find emergency shelter and housing, or designing youth programs to build confidence and self esteem.
As a Youth Support Worker you’ll need advanced skills in communication, deep listening and counselling. Your job can involve a lot of travel as you visit clients in their homes, public housing, schools, or detention centres.
There are 5 courses available for people who want to become a Youth Support Worker.
