The Elizabeth Fry Society offers unique learning experiences for students requiring practicum experience. We routinely have students from a variety of institutions doing their practicum at our office. In the past, students have come from social work, nursing, criminology, youth care, and addictions programs. Our office staff has a diverse range of educational and professional backgrounds from which the students can learn from.

While a student here, you can gain vital work experience at a community-based organization. Here are some examples of previous experiences students have had while doing their practicum here:

  • Prison in-reach (regular visits to Pinegrove Correctional);
  • Weekly Sharing Circle;
  • Provide one-on-one drop-in support to clients in the community;
  • Shadow a Court worker;
  • Attend various meetings, workshops and events as part of the EFry team; and,
  • Office Administrative Experience.

Students who are interested can email Jonna at This email address is being protected from spambots.

All students are interviewed to see if the organization is a good match for what they want out of a learning experience.

The Elizabeth Fry Society is a women’s organization that works with women-identified individuals. Our staff and students reflect this, and we take on students who reflect this gender-identity.
