The RCMP in Prince Edward Island have had youth representatives on the committee for the last number of years. The committee’s purpose is to ensure that the youth voice is represented within the RCMP, and to assist with the development of effective youth strategies and initiatives for the country.

The committee position will be effective from September 2014 until June 2015. 

The participant(s) will be required to spend two to four hours a month discussing youth issues through a mediated online forum. 

As a result of their participation, the youth will be eligible for reference letters for scholarships or, with the approval of their school, use their time with the committee as part of the volunteer hours required to obtain their high school diploma.

Youth applying must be within aged 13 and 17 who are eager to make a positive difference in their community. 

At least one participant will be chosen from each province and territory. 

Anyone interested in in applying please can email to Sgt. Leanne Butler at Leanne.butler@rcmp-grc.gc.ca with their name, age, contact information, parent/guardian contact information, a few paragraphs about why they would like to be on the committee and a school teacher’s name and contact information as a reference.

All names should be submitted by Aug. 20. For more information, 902-626-2677 or Leanne.butler@rcmp-grc.gc.ca.
