KAMLOOPS - School District No. 73 and the Kamloops RCMP will be holding the RCMP Youth Academy from Saturday, March 19th to Thursday, March 24th at Brocklehurst Middle School.
This is the sixth year the program has been delivered in Kamloops, which allows approximately 20 grade 11 and 12 students to spend a week going through a boot-camp style training led by RCMP members. The training closely resembles the experience at the RCMP depot in Regina.
The program provides information for young people to make decisions about their career path after they graduate.
While the training is aimed at students interested in a law enforcement career, all students benefit from the program whether they go on to work in law enforcement or not. T
he experience is unlike anything students have ever done and builds friendships among troop members as they have fun and learn new things.
This is one of the many wonderful opportunities that School District No. 73 has for students to test out future careers.
