Students & Volunteers


JFCY hosts a limited number of students each year for placements from:

(a) Ryerson University (a fourth year student in the Bachelor of Social Work program), and

(b) Law students through PBSC during the academic year; and

(c) Law students through public interest grants from the student’s law school during the summer months.

Occasionally, we have an opening for a college student in an administrative assistant or law clerk program.

If you are interested in spending time at JFCY as part of your education, please speak to your placement co-ordinator or your Pro Bono Students Canada co-ordinator.


Advisory Panel

This panel is comprised of individuals with specialized expertise related to children and youth rights. These volunteers undertake to do ad hoc research, write materials and provide expert advice and guidance to JFCY lawyers in support of their work. We welcome qualified scholars and professionals from various disciplines; this committee has limited membership and not all interested people will be able to participate.

Development and Fundraising Committee

This Committee and their subcommittees aim to raise awareness and funds in a variety of ways to support the organization’s important work. Currently not accepting new volunteers.
