Child and Youth Care programme is offered by Douglas College.
Surveys show that almost 100 percent of our Child and Youth Care graduates are working in the field within 3 months of graduation (those not working were continuing their education). Child and youth care practitioners work in schools, community centres, parent-child education settings, residential settings, programs for street-involved youth, addictions services, and a variety of other settings. Diploma graduates are employed in front-line positions working directly with children and youth in these settings. Degree graduates find additional employment options in government settings and team leader or supervisory positions in community settings.
Graduates from the Child and Youth Care degree program from Douglas College are eligible to apply for the Master's in Child and Youth Care at the School of Child and Youth Care, University of Victoria and to several other Master's programs. The School of Child and Youth Care also offers a PhD program.
