Reasonable Wages; with an understanding of CYW position
Child and Youth Counsellor (Current Employee) –  Kitchener-Waterloo, ON16 October 2017
Applied to this Board because of the job description and the separation from Educational Assistant from Child and Youth Work positions. Most Boards do not know the difference and we're all put into one category; the Waterloo Catholic District Board has made attempts to separate not only the pay but also the job description. Hardest part of ANY board is getting in; sometimes it'll take years to get into a full time permanent position. Have to supply until you get through with no benefits......
Pros
Identified CYW's Used for our Expertise; 40 hour weeks
Cons
No benefits and takes time to get in to a Permanent full-time position

Supply Child and Youth Worker (Current Employee) –  Kitchener-Waterloo, Ontario31 August 2015
Working as a supply means being flexible and being able to adapt to new situations quickly. This is difficult sometimes because you get to work with a student and learn about them, and then you are at another school the next day with a new student. You are working with different students everyday, facing different challenges. The teachers and other employees at the schools are super helpful when working with these students. Its a warm and welcoming environment.
Pros
Good hours
Cons
Not full time

CUPE - Supply Office Assistant (Current Employee) –  Kitchener, Waterloo, Cambridge29 December 2013
A typical work day is to complete student attendance, answer phones, greet parents and complete parents' request with respect to their children, administer medications by following instructions. Contact school buses regarding kids. Act on any requisitions by principals in the schools. Record accidents in accident log.
Pros
Enjoy work in the office as you are in one in charge other than the principal, assist teachers if need be.
