Winner of the 2018 CYC PD Award
Dan Brunelle – Fleming College Child and Youth Care class of 2018
Dan is a graduate of the Fleming CYC Program in Peterborough, Ontario. Here is an excerpt from Dan’s application:
“Child and Youth Care is a field of work that can look different on a daily basis. With an ever-changing milieu and the ability to work on the front lines of many different stages or settings, it is vital for a worker to continue to grow. The growth of a CYC, both professionally and personally cannot be overlooked and “pushed to the side” because it is these changes to our philosophy, intervention skills, supervision needs or reflective development and practice that continue to foster within a team-based setting. On-going professional development has a way to keep practitioners connected and up to date with each other.”
