Maintaining a professional body?

2014

My question:
 
What can we do as Child and Youth Workers as a collective to be seen by the human services field and the general public across Canada as  skilled, educated and professional practitioners?

Great question Bethany.  I think once we, if ever, have our own regulating body to belong to will we be recognized as a valued profession.

Join an association and be actively involved in what is often hours of volunteer labor however slowly and steadily these entities are making a difference.   You can find out more at the Conference at the University of Victoria in May this year.   Just check the UVic website for all the details.
