Thunder Bay Police Youth Corps

Thunder Bay Police Youth Corps - Good Citizen Award 2015The Thunder Bay Police Youth Corps was created in 1993 as a non-profit organization with the main goal of increasing the cadets’ confidence by preparing them for community involvement, promoting good citizenship and developing leadership skills, along with providing an introduction to policing.  The cadets learn the motto “Lead by Example” by broadening their knowledge and self-discipline through fun educational activities and community volunteerism.  Some of the events where the cadets volunteer each year are the Terry Fox Run, Police Memorial Service, Empty Bowls Caring Hearts Dinner, Legion Poppy Sales, Remembrance Day Parade, Rotary Christmas Parade, Stuff a Cruiser, Polar Bear Plunge, and the Military Craft and Yard Sale.  They also participate in the Adopt a Road clean-up when they clean Balmoral Street from William Street to Oliver Road twice annually.  Each year, the Thunder Bay Police Youth Corps cadets volunteer a combined total of about 500 hours, thus showing their dedication to this community and living up to their motto.
