          does social work include help lines for domestic violence victims?

          Need in Toronto - Lots especially for muslims/other ethinicities.

          Pay- none, except for the gratitude of the people you help out.


          On the environmental end - There are tonnes of jobs dealing with the environment that pay money though not a lot. Dont know the scope in Toronto.

            once again..I'm not looking for a lot of dinero... http://www3.pak.org/gupshup/smilies/smile.gif

            I think help lines would be more of a volunter thing than a social work thingie..

              Have you looked into teaching at your local school, especially for adults? They generally pay and though it is not much you would be helping people get a step up in life.

              If you are interested in doing your own thing and since you are a CS major, I would suggest that you help local charities by building up web sites and charging them a nomial fee. And you could even start with your local mosque, though I doubt you would get paid for it. It really depends on how much you want to get into the social work thing, cause youo could work at a nursing home and take care of elderly people but that very often can get too close for comfort for people.

              There is a lot of volunteer work depends on how much dinero and how much social work you feel like doing.
