Dear Chief Vern White,

I am writing to applaud the new government initiative called the Youth Opportunities Strategy. What a great idea for youth to be able to work constructively within the community, gain confidence, explore policing as a career, learn new skills and work towards a valuable work reference.

I volunteer with the Calgary Police Service with the Youth Interpretive Centre which educates youth on topics such as drugs, gangs, bullying and abuse. I was thrilled to work with the Barrhead, Alberta Aircadets last weekend. They were very well behaved, attentive and showed a great deal of respect for the museum and myself. Government programs like these are the foundation for our youth and in my opinion will shape the future of leaders of this great country Canada.
