Community Support Workers provide an essential service to society - they mentor and care for people who are marginalized or who face extraordinary challenges in their lives. Without Community Support Workers, many of these people would have nowhere to turn in times of struggle.
But how exactly do Community Support Workers help? We have highlighted 3 career paths you can follow with a Community Support Worker diploma:
Family Home Visitor
A Family Home Visitor is responsible for creating and maintaining regular and long-term relationships with families. They encourage good parenting, provide information on diet and nutrition, and provide necessary support for families to nurture a positive home environment.
Life Skills Coach
Life Skills Coaches create lesson plans and teach programs to marginalized members of society to help them build their autonomy and self-worth. These programs can be helpful for many types of groups, such as those with intellectual disabilities, or a history of addiction or criminal behavior.
Youth Care Practitioner
A Youth Care Practitioner deals particularly with challenges facing minors, and often mentors and cares for children who are not living at home. They act as a role model and guide youths through the struggles and challenges they may face.
