OTTAWA, Feb. 7, 2018 /CNW/ - This week, 15 teens selected from across Canada will have an opportunity at Depot, the RCMP's training academy in Regina, to learn how to make their communities safer.
The RCMP is hosting a Youth Leadership Workshop from February 7 to 10, 2018, for 15 grades 9 to 12 students, each accompanied by an RCMP employee from their community. Each day consists of educational workshops on topics such as bullying, road safety, healthy relationships and substance misuse. Based on the content of the workshop, participants will develop an action plan to combat a youth crime or victimization issue which they identify. Upon completion of the workshop, the youth will return to their communities to implement the action plan with support from the RCMP.
- Supporting youth is a strategic priority of the RCMP.
- The RCMP strives to get involved with youth to give them positive learning experiences and interactions with police officers.
- Through these experiences, youth will gain skills and knowledge that they can use to become active partners in helping keep Canadian communities safe.
