YOUTH DEVELOPMENT FACILITATOR
Join our interprofessional team in working with youth with various support needs. The Youth Development Facilitator (YDF) works with children and youth in a supportive role to address goals that they and their caregivers have identified. The YDF works independently and develops activities that are interesting and motivating for their clients. The YDF serves an informal role as mentor to the youth in their care. The YDF supports therapists during some group therapy programs such as the Escape! group, Improvable and Therapeutic Theatrics and social engagement programs.
Additionally, the YDF supports learners who have barriers to academic success. They often help clients with planning and organizing, as well as figuring out their learning style and strengths.
Youth Development Facilitators come from a variety of backgrounds including Education, Child and Youth Development, Social Work, Psychology, and yes, even Theatre. Experience with neurodiverse youth is an asset, but flexibility, engagement, playfulness, creativity and situational problem solving are key skills for this role.
This is an independent contract position of approximately 20-25 hours per week with potential for growth, particularly during the school year.
Benefits: flexible work schedule, collaborative education, consultation with clinicians/ therapists.
