Looking to complete a practicum at Youth Empowerment & Support Services!?

Please complete the application below. Note that an application does not guarantee acceptance. 

Only those that will be considered for a practicum will be contacted to complete an interview with our Manager of the applicable program.

YESS accepts practicum students from many post-secondary institutions and programs. Your program must be directly related to Youth Work, eg. Child and Youth Care, Social Work, or Addictions and Community Support. A similar program will only be considered if you have prior experience working with high risk youth, please ensure this is clear in your cover letter/resume.

Practicum must be a minimum of 300 hours to be considered. 

Here is an overview of our Practicum Student placement process:

  1. Applications must be submitted through this platform (BambooHR)
  2. Ensure all documentation is completed and submitted to move forward
  3. Managers will review applicants and reach out to conduct interviews
  4. If successful, Practicum Students are required to attend a full day orientation prior to starting
  5. All Practicum Students require a contract to be signed by all parties and all required documentation must be submitted prior to the start date of the practicum.

Please note that all applicants are reviewed on a monthly basis - all applicants are required to submit their applications at least 2 months in advance of their anticipated start date. 

If you have any questions you can contact the YESS HR Team at: 587-415-4148.

Good Luck!
