Youth Worker Reviews

Q: What is it like working as a Youth Worker?

Youth Worker in Courtenay:
"Program Worker Does The Work Of A Youth Worker WITHOUT Pay."
Pros: The job allows independence, decision making and the opportunity to make a difference in the lives of students and kids with behavioral issues.
Cons: The amount of responsibility for the pay is not reasonable. I run a work program doing firewood and the school district profits not only monetarily but the students benefit from the work experience. They learn appropriate work behavior. In addition I am a CPR qualified instructor, a red seal journeyman carpenter, and I have a 4 year honors degree and a year of courses in clinical counselling. I should be paid at the very minimum the same wage as a teacher, instead of an educational assistant. Who has nowhere near the responsibility I do.

Youth Worker in Winnipeg:
"Optimistic Helper."
Pros: I enjoying listening and participating in the conversations that are being shared by youths. Growing and learning from one another on a daily basis.
Cons: The lack of communication between staff and the unexpected events that unfold.
