Offerings for Direct Service Staff

Direct Service Staff (DSS) are adults who work directly with young people in a variety of settings, and are typically responsible for creating caring, safe and engaging environments; also known as Youth Workers. Minimally DSS should have deep knowledge of the ages & stages of the young people they work with, know how to create caring and appropriate relationships, and have a solid grasp of the
Positive Youth Development Framework.
Offerings are aligned with the Department of Youth and Community Development Core Competencies for Youth Workers and Supervisors of Youth Workers.
