Coop Student Profile: Theresa John, Criminology
Theresa John is from Saik'uz First Nation (Dakelh) and will be graduating soon with a degree in Criminology. In Spring 2015, she won a draw for tuition for one co-op work-term with the John Howard Society - Hobden House.
Hobden House is an independent living program in the Surrey community for men from federal and provincial institutions who are on conditional release and for men on day parole.
As a residence worker, Theresa gained an understanding of the dynamics between the Criminal Justice System and offenders in Canada. It contributed to her understanding of service gaps within the community and helps her apply the theoretical frameworks learnt in school to the Criminal Justice field on a ground level within the community.
