The Adult & Youth Corps Volunteer Program

The Adult & Youth Corps Volunteer Program is a Toronto Police Service initiative designed to build a working relationship between the public and the police. We aim to attract volunteers who are motivated to work actively within their community and represent the Toronto police in both a pleasant and professional manner. Entry into this program is very competitive as it attracts hundreds of applicants each year.

What is the Adult & Youth Corps Volunteer Program?

AYCVP volunteers are required to wear a Toronto Police Service issued golf shirt and identification when on duty. Volunteers in this program are not required to perform any function similar to a police officer and are not provided a uniform.
