Toronto Summer Youth In Policing Initiative (YIPI) 2022 Program
The Toronto Youth In Policing Initiative is now accepting applications for the 2022 Summer Program.
In 2012, the Youth in Policing Initiative Afterschool program was created in recognition of the importance of providing support and employment opportunities for young people all year round.
This employment initiative focuses on diverse youth between the ages of 15 and 18 years, who reside in our priority identified neighborhoods within the City of Toronto.
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 neighbourhoods we serve. This initiative gives young people an opportunity to develop job skills while fostering positive partnerships with the Toronto Police Service.
