Description:The Child and Youth Worker program involves courses offered through Brock and Durham College of Applied Arts and Technology. This five-year program combines courses and training in a variety of community settings at Durham College with an Honours degree in Child and Youth Studies at Brock. The program caters to individuals who wish to have a career working with children and adolescents and their families in a variety of settings such as the Children's Aid Society, group homes for young offenders, children's mental health centres, and schools and day programs for distressed children and youth. The program allows students to gain both solid applied skills and training, and a strong theoretical knowledge about a variety of topics in Child and Youth Studies.

Students who successfully complete the requirements for this program will be granted both an Honours degree in Child and Youth Studies from Brock, and a Child and Youth Worker diploma from Durham College. Gaining both an Honours degree and this diploma would ordinarily involve attending post-secondary institutions for seven years, but the Brock and Durham program combines the two in a single integrated package that can be completed in only five years.
