Valentina joined Humber’s Community and Justice Services (CJS) program in 2014. After graduating, she went on to complete a Bachelor’s degree in Criminal Justice.
Valentina says of her time in CJS, “it was incredible. It provided me with the foundation to get into the workforce. I was able to get a clear understanding of the criminal justice system, how and why crime occurs, and how to respond to crime from different lenses. I had extremely knowledgeable professors that challenged me to think critically. Most importantly, it involved a great deal of hands-on experience which allowed me to practice and test my knowledge.”
Since completing her schooling, Valentina has been working at the John Howard Society of Toronto, a non-profit organization dedicated to reducing the social, economic and personal costs of crime, as a Record Suspension Coordinator.
