Canadian residents between the ages of 13 to 21 can apply to become part of the RCMP National Youth Advisory Committee. This is an online opportunity for youth to interact with participants from all over the country and discuss important issues they face in their respective communities. They share their thoughts about youth crime and victimization topics and help shape RCMP youth programs and initiatives. Committee members can receive reference letters and volunteer hours. Last year nine Manitobans were part of the National Youth Advisory Committee.
The deadline to apply is September 12th. They note it is short notice but those who apply by July 31st will be part of the first selection round and get a better chance of being selected.
