Youth Care Practitioners

At MYS, we recognize youth Care Workers for what they are – models, guides and value-creators. The relationship between a youth and the Youth Care Practitioner is unique in that, more than the relationship to any other helping professional, this relationship is characterized by immediacy, intensity and rapport.

As such, we identify our youth care workers as Youth Care Practitioners to distinguish the important work being done in support of the youth we serve. Youth Care Practitioners are encouraged to attend our youth-centred trainings that will enhance their skill set, cultural awareness, and ability to seize opportunities for connection and growth.

Therapist / Clinical

Our team of clinicians and therapists are natural born problem solvers and with their years of experience dealing with trauma intervention have acquired a wealth of knowledge in regards to youth mental health issues and supporting youth in crisis. MYS has a team of caring and compassionate people whose patience knows no bounds. They support each other, and youth and their families by providing coping and strategy skills, empowerment, and advocacy. A good day for us is when families and youth are able to express their views and wishes, and with the help of our team members, gain the supports they need to move forward in their healing journey.

Administration

As a member of our admin team, you’re the Swiss army knife of staffers, providing administrative support to all areas of the organization. It could be general office management, answering calls, serving customer service needs, clerical duties, data entry, receiving deliveries, directing staff requests. And that’s just the first half of your day. If you’re a multitasker who thrives on change, all while demonstrating a high degree of confidentiality, organization, and time management, we’d love to met you.

Management / Executive

Our management and executive teams bring with them years of experience in senior roles, not always in non-profit. You know how to navigate the complexities of organizational structures with board governance, have led teams, and live and sleep strategies and planning. Broad responsibilities will include staff supervision, support, education and training, and an understanding and passion for helping youth and families across the province.
