Job Description

Are you someone who has a real passion for helping others? Are you looking to highlight your knowledge, skills, and abilities in a new and dynamic environment? We currently have an exciting opportunity for you to bring your excellent work ethic to our Community Services department.

Under the Pathway to Hope, the Province has established Integrated Child and Youth (ICY) teams in several communities defined by school district boundaries. Each ICY team supports a cluster of Public, Independent and First Nations operated schools and will include all children and youth within the geographic region, including those who don’t attend a school. These community-based multidisciplinary teams coordinate and deliver wraparound mental health and substance use services and supports for children and youth 0-19 and their families. Integrated Child and Youth teams are comprised of team members employed by various organizations and ministries. Through the collective impact of partners working together in an integrated way, children and youth with mild, moderate, and severe mental health and/or substance use challenges and their families/caregivers will have timely, equitable access to a seamless system of culturally safe and effective interventions that are based on the unique strengths, needs and risks of children, youth and families. The service delivery will be flexible and outbound, reflecting the preferences of children, youth, and families.
