Description:There is a growing need for assistance with homeless persons, children with special needs, and those with substance abuse problems. Growth is also expected in the area of First Nations outreach and community development, especially for youth and those in rehabilitation. Employment opportunities are much better for those who have appropriate post-secondary education.

Community and social service workers administer and implement a variety of social assistance programs and community services (life skills workshops, substance abuse treatment programs, and other community and social service programs). They assist clients in dealing with personal and social problems. They are employed by social service and government agencies, group homes, correctional facilities, and other establishments.
