Stoplifting for Youth!

Following in the footsteps of our very successful Stoplifting program, Stoplifting for Youth is open to girls ages 12-17 and is designed to address underlying and unresolved issues behind shoplifting behavior. The free 5 week program will help youth find new and healthy strategies to cope with life’s stressors. There will also be an overview of the impact of shoplifting, dealing with peer pressure, and motivation to change.

Elizabeth Fry Week 2018!

The Agency is hosting this year's annual Elizabeth Fry Week from May 7 - May 11. The event is held the week preceding Mother's Day in order to highlight the many Mothers that are imprisoned, and separated from their children. This year's theme is "The Winds of Change" which aligns with our recent move to our new location!

Join us for two special events, our Open House and our March for Winds of Change. The Open House is an excellent opportunity to visit our new location and learn more about The Elizabeth Fry Society of Edmonton.

Tuesday, May 8
12:00pm - 3:00pm
Suite 900, 10242 105 Street

Thursday, May 10
5:00pm at our main office (Suite 900, 10242 105 Street)
5:30pm at AB Legislature

The purpose of the March is to foster an increased awareness to issues facing marginalized women and girls, and a specific call to action of the Truth & Reconciliation Commission of Canada. Look out for more information on our Facebook and Twitter pages, since there will be events all week! RSVP at  execadmin@efryedmonton.ab.ca or 780-784-2211.
