what advice would you give someone wanting to work as a child care worker

#children #career #social-work

Thank you comment icon There is an organizational resource for child and youth care work that can be very useful for becoming a child and youth care worker. There are also a number of educational programs that prepare them for professional level work, and a highly regarded certification program to provide a recognized credential. So 'google' ACYCP. This is the Association for Child and Youth Care Practice. It has an informative newsletter with current and past issues available. Karen Vanderven

Patti’s Answer

Consider starting with some connections informally in your community where you could learn and get some experiences caring for children that you know or in organizations you already are connected to - like churches, family or neighborhoods. It may take some volunteer time to get the experiences that will help you build skills and have the credibility to explore this as a profession. Consider finding adults who do childcare or social work as a profession and see what connections they can make. Hopefully someone here will reach out from those professions. I wish you the best of luck in your exploration.
