It is no secret that being young has its many challenges. Most young people struggle with confidence or self esteem, choosing their career path and finding their place in this world. This is where youth workers can prove so important.

Joseph is one of CCI Ottawa’s newest youth case workers. He is part of Client Support Services which works with government-assisted refugees. Joseph works primarily with youth aged 18 to 28. It is his job to build a rapport with youth, understand their needs, help them realize their potential and ultimately, see them through to success.
