Sheridan, Peel police join forces to offer Youth in Policing Initiative

Sheridan College has partnered with Peel police to offer a Youth in Policing Initiative (YIPI) this summer. Students in the program will spend three days a week on Sheridan’s campus as they participate in mock police prep tests; mentorship; and training in areas such as CPR and first aid, mental health, health and safety, and leadership. The program gives students a paid opportunity to learn about the diverse career opportunities available within the police service, including jobs such as IT professionals, lawyers, dispatchers, and business analysts. “We want to see all youth in the community, especially in our local campus communities thrive and reach their full potential and we know post-secondary education is a really important part of that journey,” said Sheridan’s director of community engagement and stakeholder relations Karen LeMoine.
