  DRP Youth in Policing Wants You to Join in on Some Summer Fun!

Jul 16, 2014 15:48 ET

The Durham Regional Police Youth in Policing (YIP) students would like to invite teens from all over the province to participate in the 2014 Youth Forum called “The Ripple Effect”, on Wednesday, July 23 in Oshawa.

Last year, some teens travelled from as far as Sault Ste. Marie to join in at the one day conference. DRP would like to hear what you have to say about today’s youth issues and have the opportunity to form specific plans of action to eliminate negative issues and bring these solutions back to their schools and communities.

Former Toronto Argonauts football player Chuck Winters, who plays an active part in the Toronto Argonauts Stop the Violence campaign, will be in attendance as well as motivational speakers Dwayne Morgan and Christal Earle.

The forum is an all-day event from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., and will highlight issues relating to mental health, diversity and bullying. It will be held at the Embassy Church, 416 Taunton Rd. W, in Oshawa.

The conference is open to any youth groups who wish to participate. Students can also earn seven community service hours to out toward their high school diploma.
For more information or to R.S.V.P. please email, youthinpolicing@drps.ca.

Junior Youth in Policing Camp

Every August, the Youth in Policing (YIP) students host a Junior Youth in Policing Camp for children aged 10 to 13. The YIP students will be paired up with Junior YIP campers for the entire week and allows them to interact with various emergency services within the community and gain valuable leadership experience.

It will be held at the Durham College campus, 2000 Simcoe St. N. Oshawa, from Tuesday, August 12 to Friday, August 15.

All are welcome to apply!
