The Community Service Worker Diploma program provides students with the skills necessary to provide support and assistance to individuals, families, groups and communities in need.
Community Service Workers are compassionate, supportive individuals who are pillars of the community. This is an intense program that involves small group work, practice interviews, and exercises in self-awareness.
Interpersonal and communication skills are vital for Community Service Workers who manage a broad range of responsibilities including interviewing and counseling clients, intervening in crisis situations, working with other agencies to help clients meet health, emotional and safety requirements, and assisting Social Workers in many activities including interviews, case reports and collecting data.
Students are taught by instructors with substantial experience in a variety of community service positions, and upon graduation students are eligible for entry level positions as counselors in a variety of settings in the community service, and social work fields.
