Toronto Police Services Board Youth In Policing Initiative Summer Program 2023

Deadline: February 5, 2023

The Toronto Police Service and the Toronto Police Services Board in partnership with the Government of Ontario’s Ministry of Children, Community and Social Services are now accepting applications for the 2023 Youth in Policing Summer Program.

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 neighborhoods we serve by selecting youth reflecting our culturally diverse city;
  • To provide a safe and positive employment opportunity; and
  • To promote the Toronto Police Service as an employer of choice

This program enhances the link between the police and the neighbourhoods we serve. This initiative gives young people an opportunity to develop job skills while fostering positive partnerships with the Toronto Police Service.

Youth, ages 15 to 18, who reside in a Neighbourhood Improvement Area in the city, are employed through the summer and throughout the year, working alongside police officers and civilian staff in a wide range of roles.

The program is not unique to Toronto, as it was created and funded by the Ministry of Children and Youth Services, and is now used throughout the province.
