Students Encouraged To Apply To Annual Youth Leadership Program Hosted By OPP

Caledon OPP will be hosting its annual Youth Leadership Program from Tuesday, August 7th, 2018 to Friday, August 10th, 2018 – 8:30 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. daily.

During this time, students will be provided the opportunity to engage in a variety of community activities while interacting with Caledon OPP officers and fellow students.

All applicants interested in applying to the program must meet the following criteria:

  • Be a student (between grades 9 to 12) attending a Caledon school;
  • Be motivated to actively participate;
  • Possess a genuine interest in contributing to the community in a meaningful way;
  • Be a team player and work well with others.

The applicant will be required to submit an OPP permission form signed by a parent/guardian along with a brief essay (approx. 250-500 words) written by the applicant. The essay should outline reasons for the applicant’s interest and identify what the applicant has to offer to the program. OPP permission forms are available at the front desk of the Caledon OPP detachment and at Caledon secondary schools. Return the permission form and essay attached to the Caledon OPP detachment to the attention of PC Tamara Schubert no later than June 30, 2018.

Successful applicants will earn a sense of satisfaction from being able to give back to their community and attain 40 hours of community work as a part of their requirement for successful completion from high school.
