RCMP Youth Leadership Workshop

January 6, 2020
Regina, Saskatchewan

Media Advisory


The media is invited to attend the RCMP Youth Leadership Workshop during an afternoon at the RCMP Academy, Depot Division, in Regina, Saskatchewan.

A group of 16 grades 9-12 self-identified Indigenous students from across Canada are attending the workshop, each accompanied by an RCMP police mentor from their respective communities. They are working on community action plans to help address a youth crime or victimization issue in their community. They are also taking part in interactive educational sessions and hearing from well-known guest speakers.

This is an opportunity for local media to get a glimpse into the workshop, and to highlight the positive changes young people can make by taking leadership and getting involved in their communities. Harrison Browne will be in attendance to speak about diversity and inclusion, and the importance of teamwork. Harrison is the first transgender athlete in North American professional sports and a trailblazer for LGBTQ rights.
