There is no one way to write a standout cover letter for child and youth worker resume. Since each candidate’s situation differs from the other, hiring managers often receive cover letters of all “colors”.
It is important to understand the function and the purpose of a cover letter, before bending your head over to write one. The main purpose of a cover letter (in any situation) is to inform the hiring manager that you have a certain skills set that you can use to contribute positively to his or her company.
Writing along the lines of this, your cover letter can become the best piece of professional writing that a hiring manager has seen. Your effort and research will show in a cover letter, so make sure that you do make the effort to create one that is spot on with the hiring manager’s requirements. Anything less than this will translate into tardiness.

Dear Mr. Mason:
Ever since a short volunteer stint at YMCA Youth Council in 2008, I have been intrigued about this work, and have spent the last 5 years working diligently to create and deliver programs related to areas such as health, fitness, drugs and violence, for both children and young adults. At this point in time, I am interested in working as a Child and Youth Worker at Fairview Community and Health Services, an initiative that I am positive is right down my trail of expertise.
Meeting with young people to assess their needs and identify requirements to help place them in support groups is my niche. Since I am an inherently insightful and pleasant individual, young people automatically take to me, making this work not only easy but fruitful as well.
Over the years, I have been actively assessing risks and providing crises counseling to youngsters experiencing trauma, with a great amount of success. With my comprehension of services and resources available to help youngsters meet their self-development and educational needs, I can be an immediate and profound addition to your team of child and youth workers.
Anticipating meeting with you in person, I will contact your office for an interview soon. If you need to reach out to be before that, please feel free to call me on the number given below.
Thank you for your time and consideration.
