Program overview

The Graduate Diploma in Youth Work gives you an understanding of the various approaches and practices used in the field, combining the latest principles of youth development with training in clinical interventions. You will develop the skills needed to support young people aged 10 to 30 while gaining exposure to a variety of professional settings. Under the guidance of our faculty members you will learn about a wide range of clinical approaches with young people, including an emphasis on relational, emancipatory and psycho-educational techniques. Montreal’s culturally diverse population offers work opportunities with groups in need such as First Nations and refugee youth, as well as programs in addiction and residential care. Our courses are designed to help you build a portfolio for an application to Quebec's Ordre des psychoéducateurs et psychoéducatrices, based on their "application par equivalences" program.
