YOUTH IN POLICING INITIATIVE (YIPI)

On February 14, 2006, Minister Mary Anne Chambers, of the Ministry of Children and Youth Services, announced that the Ontario Government would be funding various youth opportunity initiatives, as part of the government’s new strategy to address the growing needs of our youth. Part of that strategy, was and is a partnership with the Rama Police Services Board, the Rama Police Service, and the Ministry of Children and Youth Services to hire a youth for the summer.

The Youth in Policing Initiative is a partnership between these three agencies to create a meaningful work experience for youth. This summer employment initiative focuses on youth between the ages of 15 -18 years old, residing in priority neighborhoods within the Rama First Nation.
The aim of the Youth in Policing Initiative is to promote youth participation in and exposure to the work environment through diverse, educational, and productive work assignments.

This program also enhances the link between the police and the neighborhoods we serve. This initiative gives young people an opportunity to develop job skills while fostering positive community partnerships.

The mandate of the Youth in Policing Initiative is:

  • To promote youth participation in and exposure to the work environment through diverse, educational and productive work assignments.
  • To enhance the link between the police and the community we serve by selecting youth reflecting our culturally diverse community.
  • To provide a safe and positive employment opportunity over the summer months for youth.
  • To promote the Rama Police Service as an employer of choice.

The goal of the Youth in Policing Initiative is to give young people an opportunity to develop job skills while enhancing police and community relations.

The selection of the youths is based on the following criteria:

  • Be legally eligible to work in Canada
  • Between 15 and 18 years of age at the commencement of the program
  • Returning to school in September
  • Must be a Canadian citizen or permanent resident
  • Successful through employment security clearance processes

Youth must be permanent resident from or be a member of the Rama First Nation.

We are now accepting applications for the 2017 Youth in Policing Initiative.

Closing date:      June 2, 2017 at 5:00 pm.
