Programs at St. Lawrence College are delivered using a variety of instruction modes. Courses may be offered in the classroom or lab, entirely online, or in a hybrid mode which combines classroom sessions with online learning activities. Program delivery can be run weekdays, weekends or evenings. Upon registration, each full-time student is provided a St. Lawrence College email account which is used to communicate important information about program or course events.
In the Child and Youth Worker Program, students and faculty are required to become members of the Ontario Association of Child and Youth Counsellors. As members we adopt and adhere to the Code of Ethics as professionals in the field of child and youth work.
The development of practical competence occurs through a series of field placements (1,200 hours). Such extensive training allows students to build relationships with children and youth which are an essential part of the child and youth worker field.
Field placement choices are made with the student’s personal growth in mind providing the student with the opportunity to develop his/her skills to be effective in the field.
