A Unique Experience for

Students

The Elizabeth Fry Society of Saskatchewan offers unique learning experiences for students requiring practicum experience, and plentiful opportunities to aid the community with volunteer options.

We often have students from a variety of institutions fulfilling their practicum at our office, coming from backgrounds in social work, nursing, criminology, youth care, and addictions programs. Reflecting this, our office staff has a diverse range of educational and professional knowledge for the students to draw upon, and gain vital work experience at a community-based organization. Some of the previous experiences and roles of students and volunteers here include:

    1. Prison in-reach (regular visits to Pinegrove Correctional);
    2. Weekly Sharing Circle;
    3. Providing one-on-one drop-in support to clients in the community;
    4. Shadowing a court worker;
    5. Attending various meetings, workshops and events as part of the EFry team;
    6. Office administrative experience.

Prospective students can contact Sydney Wouters, Social Worker, via email or call 306-668-0604 for more information. Please note that all students are interviewed to ensure the organization is a good match for their desired 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.
