International Child and Youth Care Week (May 5-11)

In recognition of International Child and Youth Care Week (May 5-11) and Thank a Youth Worker Day (May 8), the Association congratulates all child and youth care workers across Newfoundland and Labrador for their service and commitment to young people and families. 

What is a Child and Youth Care Practitioner?
Child and youth care practitioners work with children and/ youth to facilitate optimal personal, social and educational development and enable them to gain a voice, influence, and place in society. They specialize in the creation and implementation of therapeutic programs and planned environments with a focus on the therapeutic relationship; the application of theory and research about human growth and development; and strength-based practice.
Child and youth care practitioners comprise the largest human service workforce in the world.

The Association would also like to commend child and youth care practitioners who have completed the rigorous exam, portfolio and application process and become professionally certified child and youth care practitioners.

The Child and Youth Care Certification Board (CYCCB) awards professional certification for individuals who demonstrate their commitment to professional practice and higher standards. Certification as a Child and Youth Care Professional is a meaningful way to demonstrate experience and skills to colleagues, employers, and the children and families that are served.

A list of certified CYCs can be found on this website under the Certification heading.
