Why I love working at the Centre

Velta Douglas

Payroll Coordinator

Prior to working here, I completed my placement at a treatment centre for youth and was often in contact with staff members from the Centre regarding placement opportunities for our clients. This was my initial foray into the organization and each interaction with the Centre was nothing short of professional and efficient. In 2016, I volunteered with the Centre and was eventually offered a position as a Volunteer Coordinator. Soon after, I was promoted to HR Payroll Coordinator. I genuinely enjoy working here, because they invest in training and development programs for their employees, promote from within, prioritize engaging with their clientele from a place of compassion and provide valuable employee benefits.

Child & Youth Care Practitioner

I joined the Centre family last October. Taking the plunge joining a new organization is never easy. You never know what to expect. I had my hopes (and fears) of how it will be. All of those questions were answered as soon as I started. I was welcomed with virtual open arms by everyone. The ISFY team have been so supportive and really making me feel like I am a part of the team. This is a strong community I believe I can grow with. I love the direction the Centre family is going and am happy to be a part of this journey.

Staff development and recognition

We provide an annual program of clinical training through which we build the capacity of our people and foster their development. Contingent on funding, we seek every year to identify key training topics that support our overall program of clinical model renewal.

We are focused on improving understanding of developmental trauma and deepening our awareness of issues related to health equity and anti-Black racism.

We also recognize that staff have individual development goals outside of organizational training priorities. For staff looking for individual learning opportunities, a 50 per cent discount on online training at the SickKids CCMH Learning Institute is available.

Through our annual staff awards we seek to celebrate excellence across the organization. Our awards focus on Innovation, Collaboration and Service Excellence.
