About Us


What We Are About

CYC Assets is geared to the Child and Youth  Practitioner who desires further professional development on topics pertaining to working with children, youth and families.

Our webinars will also be of interest to anyone in the social services sector who wishes to gain knowledge about children and youth from a strength-based perspective.

Perhaps you are a novice and wish to gain knowledge and practical skills that will help you be more successful early in your career. Maybe you are looking to branch out to another area of Child and Youth Care and need some environment specific strategies and skills to ace that interview.  You might be a seasoned professional in the field wanting to continue your knowledge with the latest evidence-based programs, research and resources to keep current.

We are here to fill all of those needs with our cost and time effective webinars.

Our Story

CYC Assets was created to fill the gap for professional development and offers domain based webinar topics to keep you abreast of both what is new in the field as well as tried and true methods.

Our webinars are delivered by professionals with front-line experience and are both cost and time effective.

Join us and be part of the collective knowledge that we can share out to each other.
