Supporting Youth Recovery: An Innovative New Certificate Program

e you a young person in long-term recovery who is looking to enter the behavioral health workforce to help support young people and their families?  Are you a family member of a young person who has experienced addiction challenges and recovery?  Do you have lived experience with addiction and recovery and want to learn more about how to provide recovery support services to youth, adolescents, transition-aged youth and their families?  
Then we are looking for you!  
 The Council is excited to offer an innovative certificate program to prepare individuals to provide peer-based recovery support services to youth, adolescents, young adults, and their families. 

The Peer Paraprofessional Certificate in Supporting Youth Recovery goesbeyond the current requirements for the Certified Recovery Specialist (CRS) Credential in Pennsylvania by providing students with enhanced and specialized training to work with youth, adolescents, young adults and their families.

To obtain the certificate, students must complete 90 hours of classroom instruction on topics related to provision of Recovery Support Services to youth, adolescents, young adults, and their families. The program also requires students to complete 100 hours of field placement at a local agency that provides services to youth, adolescents, young adults, and their families.
To be considered for the certificate program, students must complete an application and interview process, and be willing to commit to the entire program. If accepted through the competitive application process, students will be awarded full scholarship for the certificate program. Financial support for this program is provided by a Health Resource Services Administration (HRSA) grant from Behavioral Health Workforce Education and Training for Paraprofessionals. Click here to complete application.

Classes in Doylestown, Philadelphia and Rosemont, PA will be forming as applications are accepted and scheduling will be discussed during the interview process.  For questions contact Brooke Feldman, Project Coordinator atbfeldman@councilsepa.org or 215-345-6644 x3109.  Click here for more info.
