Что я буду изучать?

Community Worker (Fast-Track) is a dynamic social justice program grounded in the principles of human rights and anti-oppression that prepares students to work with largely urban-centred and diverse communities across a range of issues (i.e. poverty, housing, food security, immigration and settlement, etc.) in ways that are responsive to their multiple and changing needs.

If you are passionate about human rights and social justice, committed to working with diverse communities, bring a mature and professional approach to your education and field work, and are prepared to take on a course load of 20+ hours per week, this program is for you.

FEATURES OF THE COMMUNITY WORKER PROGRAM INCLUDE:

Strong ties with over 200 agencies across the Greater Toronto Area (GTA).

Founder and lead organizer of the annual Tommy Douglas Institute that brings communities, students, educators and activists together to explore higher education and social justice in the 21st century.

The full-time Community Worker program has been graduating community workers for more than 40 years.

PROGRAM COURSES ARE ORGANIZED INTO FOUR CORE AREAS:

community work theory and practice

social and political analysis

group skills and counselling

field placement and seminar

We take our students to the field and bring the field to our students. Not only will students develop relationships with our community partners through field placements, they will also meet with professionals in their classrooms at networking events, guest panels and program electives taught by agencies and practitioners currently working in the field (i.e. Community Legal Issues, Urban Aboriginal Peoples’ Perspectives in Community Development, Housing and Homelessness).

YOUR FIELD STUDY OPTIONS

Students have the opportunity to develop practical skills and gain valuable work experience by completing a 400-hour placement in the last two semesters of the program.

Through our strong ties to more than 200 field agencies across the GTA, students can find placements suited to their interests in a variety of settings, from immigration and settlement services to food banks, and from cultural community services to governmental agencies.

Students also have the option to apply for one of our exciting international placements (i.e. India, Jamaica).
