Student Placements

YouthLink has established relationships with several post-secondary institutions for the placement of students who are working towards their Master’s degree in Social Work, Counselling Psychology or equivalent.  Successful applicants will eventually be eligible for certification /membership in a registered professional association for practitioners in clinical therapy.
We also offer placements to students who are working towards Child & Youth Worker Diploma/Degree within our residential, day treatment and developmental services programs, again through enduring relationships with the instructional institution.
For more information about these opportunities please see your educational institution and proceed through the prescribed process for applying for the positions. Otherwise, thank you for checking here and good luck with your search!

Due to the current COVID-19 pandemic, our What’s Up Walk-In services are now being offered online through video-conferencing. We know this is a stressful time for everyone, and we want you to be able to continue to access our counsellors and clinicians in a safe and secure way so we are now offering you online video-conferencing counselling and support.


Our E-Counselling What’s Up Walk-In service will be open Monday – Friday until further notice. If you would be interested in booking one of our daily video-conferencing appointments for a counselling or support session with a clinician, call 416-967-1773 extension 222 and you will be connected to our Intake department. E-Counselling and support is also available for many of our other programs. Intake staff can provide you with more information if you are interested.


Although many of our staff are temporarily working off-site, all of our housing and residential programs continue to operate as usual.
