Elizabeth Fry Society of Edmonton: Registration Open for ‘Stoplifting for Youth Program’
Registration is now open for the next cycle of our Stoplifting for Youth program. The free, 5 week program is open to teen girls ages 12-17 who shoplift. Please note that a shoplifting charge is not a prerequisite of registration, simply a history of shoplifting. The program runs Mondays from 4:30-6:30 beginning May 7th. Pre-registration is required.
This program is an adaptation of our successful adult Stoplifting program and it will work to address the underlying issues that lead to shoplifting while helping youth find new and healthy coping strategies. There will be a focus on self-esteem building and peer pressure resilience throughout the program, while also discussing the impacts of shoplifting and motivation to change. Participants that complete the program will receive a certificate and support letters can be written if required.
