If you’re the kind of person who believes in standing up for others, consider a career in victim services. It is a high-demand area—and Saskatchewan Polytechnic’s Victim Services Coordination program will open the door to jobs with police, corrections or community-based agencies.
Objectives of the course:
Victim services coordinators provide advocacy, information, assistance and referrals to victims of crime or traumatic events. You’ll be working with diverse groups of people and handling emotionally-charged situations, so good communication skills are important. You also need to work from a place of strength, so you must be living a healthy lifestyle.
