For future community workers
Several college-level programs are aimed at developing the professional skills and attitudes essential for intervening with various vulnerable clienteles. Among other things, future graduates of the Youth and Adult Correctional Intervention; Special Care Counselling and Social Service Programs might work with individuals who have legal issues or are the victims of crime. These community workers make access to justice easier, particularly for the most vulnerable.
Éducaloi, for example, on its ”Legal Information Tools for Community Workers” page, offers legal information tools that teachers can choose from to guide students. The topics were chosen to help community workers understand the legal issues of vulnerable, marginalized or clients facing serious hardship.
- Sexual Violence
- People Dealing with Homelessness
- Indigenous Communities
- Young people and the criminal justice system (French only)
- Women and the criminal justice system (French only)
