Beyond the Classroom

Have the opportunity to apply your skills and knowledge in disability services as part of a 120-hour internship, where you will both observe and participate in a job-related capacity under the supervision of experts in the field. Field trips to L'Arche and other disability-oriented organizations are also part of the curriculum, providing opportunities to meet professionals in policing and corrections, including Redeemer graduates, who are now in these fields.
