VCC Counselling skills
Change your life by pursuing a career that can help change the lives of others.
VCC’s part-time addiction counselling skills and community counselling skills programs are perfect for those interested in family support work, youth outreach, recovery services or a variety of other human services-related positions.
Johnny Perry was working as a chef in a Downtown Eastside catering company that helps employ and feed the less fortunate when he decided to enroll at VCC to learn the fundamentals of counselling.
“Over the years, I would often provide support services for our staff, many of whom suffer mental illness, struggle with addiction or have a hard time finding housing. I love to cook but I think social work is my second calling in life.”
Because VCC’s counselling skills programs are flexible, Perry was able to keep his job and study part-time. Students have up to three years to complete the required courses to earn a certificate.
Apply now and start studying in May.
