HUS1640 Principles of Youth Work (AS)

Prepares students to function as youth workers using a youth development approach in community-based, residential, group home and other youth work environments. Students will explore these concepts: developing a professional awareness of youth work; identifying and distinguishing between asset building models and deficit-based models of adolescent development; and developing a capacity to design and implement programs consistent with the needs of youth in relation to available resources.
