If you are a compassionate person committed to building relationships with at-risk children, youth and families, the Bachelor of Arts in Child & Youth Care (BACYC) Program is the first step in helping you enter the challenging and rewarding field of child and youth care.
The BACYC program will give you the knowledge and skills you need to support the development of vulnerable children and youth in their everyday environments through the full range of human experience - in times of happiness, difficulty and resolution.
The program offers a four-year Bachelor of Arts in Child and Youth Care degree. We also offer a unique specialty in
Aboriginal Child, Family and Community Studies.
You can apply to enter the Bachelor of Arts in Child and Youth Care degree at third year, if you have an appropriate diploma. We offer a unique Youth Justice program that allows you to obtain your diploma, gain relevant and practical skills, and provides a pathway to the BACYC (and other DC degree programs).
