Children’s Programs in Red Deer
Child and Youth Worker (Current Employee) – Red Deer, AB – 11 December 2018
The Youth residential homes in Red Deer are simply amazing to work for. I have had an opportunity to work for most of them and although they can be challenging, the program supervisor gets it. The Program supervisor goes above and beyond, demonstrates the skills we all want to have and if we are asked to do something the program supervisor is always prepared to do the work along side you. It’s clear that this has been passed down to the Service Coordinators in the program and addiontally down to the front line staff. Such a great role model and influence, the program supervisor works quietly in the background to ensure that the child and youth care workers are set up for success, and everyone seems to notice. The whole agency should take note of this style of leadership and mimic this is other programs. The Community Disability workers in other areas in the company would benefit from stronger leadership at times, particularly the more challenging homes. The programs are friendly, fast paced and are typically awe inspiring, CSS children’s management supports the front line staff through the tough stuff. I would recommend the Youth homes to any staff working in the field.
Friendly, supportive, lots of team bonding, training, program events, management
Training (agency not program) can take awhile to get into
