DescriptionThe Social Service Worker - Native Specialization program is for anyone who is interested in gaining the skills of a social service worker as you advocate for social justice in both Aboriginal and mainstream organizations to help empower individuals, families, and communities. You will be equipped with the enhanced knowledge needed to provide all clients - both Aboriginal and non-Aboriginals alike, the support they need to overcome barriers they may face in their lives.

With a strong foundation in core social service worker skills, the program infuses an Aboriginal worldview throughout the curriculum. Whether you are Aboriginal or not, this impactful program will prepare you to become a skilled social service worker, practise within a culturally competent approach, and demonstrate an increased knowledge of Aboriginal issues and interventions.
