Youth Programs

22 Division TPS Rover Crew

The 22 Division TPS Rover Crew is a joint program between the Toronto Police Service, Humber College and Scouts Canada. It was founded by Police Foundation students at the Humber College Lakeshore Campus in 2003. Rovers are the scouting designation for young women and men 18 to 26 years old. The program is designed to prepare young people for the future by encouraging them to give back to the community while also giving them an insight into the law enforcement field. The members are all students of Humber College and are taking a program within the School of Social and Community Services (e.g. Police Foundations, Crime Scene Investigation, Private Security Investigation, Justice Studies, etc.).

Youth in Policing Initiative (YIPI)

The Youth in Policing Initiative is an after school program 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, living in priority identified neighbourhoods in 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 local community, providing young people with an opportunity to develop job skills while fostering positive partnerships with the Toronto Police Service.
