Community Service Worker

UFV’s Community Support Worker Certificate program prepares you to support children and adults with disabilities and their families. You may assist with a variety of tasks, including daily living activities, recreation, or employment, in order to improve your client’s quality of life, encourage autonomy, and foster community inclusion. When you graduate, you are prepared for employment in community support settings, including group homes and day programs.

You can also become an Education Assistant, working under the supervision of classroom teachers to perform duties such as coaching students in a variety of subjects, preparing specialized teaching materials, and meeting students’ personal care needs.

The Community Support Worker program includes a 200-hour supervised practicum, which allows you to apply what you learn and gain hands-on experience.

After you complete your certificate, you can further your education with a Social Services diploma or other credential.

Increased demand for Community Support Workers indicates that employment prospects remain strong.
