Youth and Adult Correctional Intervention

Students visited the Federal Training Centre in Laval earlier this semester as part of their Fieldwork 1 course. In this course, students visit 6 to 8 different facilities ranging from YMCAs, to the Old Brewery Mission, to federal or provincial prisons and penitentiaries. The Federal Training Centre is a minimum to medium security institution. Students visited cell blocks encompassing individual and group housing, were introduced to the procedures of canine units and prisoner transport, toured the Centre’s grounds, library, and garment work and auto body training centres, and conversed with guards and inmates, many of whom are serving lengthy or life sentences. Teacher Barbara Ruttenberg’s efforts to obtain permission for our students to visit a wide variety of institutions give them an eye-opening introduction to the realities of our correctional system.

Thousands at John Abbott College

Sainte-Anne-de-Bellevue – October 25, 2017 – Thousands took advantage of the sunny and warm weather on Saturday, October 21 to visit the annual John Abbott College open house. Potential students and their parents asked questions, visited labs and wandered through classrooms.

Current students from Police Technology, Pre-Hospital Emergency Care and Nursing programs set the scene outside for a multi-vehicle accident simulation. Actors from the Theatre department and a critically injured high-fidelity simulation mannequin caught the crowd’s complete attention. Others visited the Psychology department watching a demonstration with friendly intelligent rats or stepped outside with a Physics teacher and astronomy expert to view our skies through a telescope.

The campus buzzed with energy at every level as young people looked around, stepping into a snap shot of college life at Abbott. So many former students, now parents, shared memories with faculty and staff, signing up to be on the Abbott Alumni register to be kept informed as events and activities ramp up to the College’s 50th anniversary in 2020.
