Child and Youth Workers, Team Leaders
Relationships are the medium of all human endeavor.
Attachment instincts are at work first as a mechanism of survival, and later in maturity, as a mechanism of potential. At Heritage Family Services we are building an attachment village by recognizing that our staff are not islands unto themselves, but exist best in groups that inspire joy, provide belonging, loyalty and accountability for shared ideals. We are the interconnected web that supports individual human potential. In this way we take the learnings of attachment theory directed towards children, and apply it to our entire organization.
Our relationships are the essential foundation for our growth and learning as an organization and the key to success that has enabled us to expand our programs throughout central Alberta.
Are you an experienced Child and Youth Worker ready to explore the next chapter in your career? Are you new to the field and looking for an organization to build a career with?
