The Youth Academy is a five-day experience intended to promote a career in law enforcement and takes place between June 29 and July 3, 2020.

Apply now at your school’s Career Services Department. Students who are interested will then be expected to complete a physical capabilities test and a structured interview.
What will you learn?
Burnaby RCMP Youth Academy Cadets will learn about everyday policing and will run through scenarios to assess their understanding of what they have learned.
Cadets will receive training from current Burnaby RCMP officers in:
- Frontline Policing
- Forensic Identification Services
- Mental Health Outreach

- Physical / Mental well being
There will also be engaging presentations from various RCMP units that operate in the Lower Mainland including Police Dog Services and the Emergency Response Team.
At Burnaby Schools we work to create learning experiences that empower students with the skills they need to succeed, says Gary Wong, Chair of the Burnaby Board of Education.
We appreciate our partnership with the RCMP, which is enabling this wonderful career exploration opportunity for our students.
