Call for Proposals

We invite Child and Youth Care Counsellors to submit a proposal and share their professional experience with our community as one of our 2024/2025 Lunch and Learn Leaders.

This is a great opportunity to deliver a 1-hour, skills-based workshop to CYC professionals within our community. It is also a chance to let others know who you are and what you do while exposing them to new trends in child and youth care counselling and professional development.

Lunch and Learn Leaders will receive promotion through our website and social media channels, and a $100 stipend for their participation.

All proposals must include the following information:

  • Program title
  • Summary of the proposed session – A synopsis of the topic, the value it provides to participants and the relevance to child and youth care. It will also be used on the website and social media.
  • Learning objectives – Your time goes very fast so please focus on only one or two key points. Use SMART objective writing! This piece is important. If you do not provide solid learning objectives, your proposal may not be considered.
  • A plan for program delivery – i.e. activities, slides, handouts etc. Our participants love interactive workshops and will ask many questions!
  • A brief biography of yourself and any co-presenters. This will also be used on the website and social media.
  • Your resume that clearly demonstrates your skill or area of expertise

 Please submit your proposal via the web form below.

The Member Engagement and Event Committee will review submissions and you will be notified when that is complete.

Please note: that incomplete proposals will not be considered. Selection will be based on the quality and originality of the submission, relevance to the member’s needs, and the qualifications of the presenter.
