As an Auxiliary Child and Youth Care Worker, you’ll assist young people as individuals or groups to solve social, emotional, developmental, behavioural and financial problems in an agency framework.
There are a number of qualifications that you can study for in order to have a career as a Child and Youth Care Worker (CYCW).
These depend on your level of schooling qualifications and how long you want to study for. Of course, you can continue to study, and achieve more qualifications throughout your career.
You will have to register with the South African Council for Social Service Professions (SACSSP) in order to legally practise professionally in this field of social work.
