Child & Youth Worker Program at Fanshawe College

 

I am pleased once again to be a part of Fanshawe College’s CYW program at the Woodstock campus. This is a 3 year program with 6 semesters (3 in class at the college and 3 in the field). I am looking forward to reconnecting with a number of former students as their college supervisor. This 4 month field placement is where the students are able to put their academic training into practice.
