The Adult & Youth Volunteer Program

The Adult & Youth 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 and it attracts a large amount of applicants each year. The Adult and Youth Volunteer Program (A.Y.V.P.) assigns volunteers to work alongside the Community Safety Response Unit officers at their local police station.

Mandatory Requirements

  • Be at least 14 year of age;
  • Have no criminal charges pending and not have been convicted of a criminal offence for which a pardon has not been granted;
  • Be a Canadian citizen or landed immigrant (permanent resident).

Duties of an Adult & Youth Volunteer

The duties of an Adult & Youth Volunteer are meant to be focused on crime prevention and community outreach initiatives.

Some areas where volunteers are utilized are:

  • Assisting with Community Barbeques and Divisional Open House events
  • Staffing kiosks at community events/fairs or shopping centres
  • Assisting with large-scale police events
  • Conducting child car seat installation clinics
