Professional Child and Youth Care practitioners (CYCs) specialize in helping children, youth and families improve their lives. As a student, you will receive training in areas such as counselling, addictions, sexuality, recreation, mental health and special needs. Your courses will place a strong emphasis on practice and application, including four levels of supervised field placement in a variety of settings. Unlike many other colleges, we will provide you with field placements that are scheduled alongside your academic courses so you can practice and process what you are learning. Theory and application will be woven together throughout your training so you will have many opportunities to gain hands-on experience and learn from the experiences of others. This program has a long history of innovation and uniqueness within the Province. The CYC program at Sault College will prepare you to positively affect the lives of children, youth and families throughout your career.
