Equity and Inclusion in CYC

Equity and Inclusion in CYC

CYWK 2004

Students explore social issues facing children and youth from diverse families with a concentration on Indigenous communities in Canada. Emphasis is placed on Indigenous ideas, values, peoples and an authentic history. In addition, students explore other areas of equity and inclusion including but not limited to, mobility issues, exceptionalities, LGBTT, racialized communities, marginalized and disenfranchised communities. Learners incorporate the developmental-ecological perspective when considering issues affecting diverse families and examine culturally sensitive strategies to support children, youth, and families. Students integrate this knowledge in the building of respectful relationships, communication, and developmental practice methods.
