The Central Okanagan Elizabeth Fry Society provides a safe and confidential resource for women and children in the Central Okanagan.

Our mission is to empower women and children to achieve dignity, security, and equality in the community.

We are offering orientation sessions to individuals who are interested in learning about how the Elizabeth Fry Society is meeting the needs of women and children in the Central Okanagan who have been impacted by violence, poverty, or involvement in the legal system. Sessions will take place on Saturday April 21st at 10am, and Thursday April 26th at 5:30pm.

During the orientation session, participants will learn about our mission, goals, programs and services, ethics and beliefs, how you can help support the Elizabeth Fry Society as well as qualifications and selection criteria and process for becoming a volunteer.

These workshops are part of:

Prevention of Violence Against Women Week: April 15th to 21st
