PEACE Youth Leadership Program

About the PEACE Program

The Halton Regional Police Service has run its Police Ethnic and Cultural Education Youth Leadership Program (PEACE) to promote understanding and cultural awareness among Halton-area high school students since 1988.

Each year, local youth are selected to participate in the 9 week program at our Halton Police Headquarters – 2485 North Service Road, Oakville.

Working closely with members of the Halton Regional Police Service, PEACE students will improve their cultural proficiency, communication and leadership skills. The students will also gain knowledge about all aspects of policing.

The PEACE Youth Leadership Program is offered twice annually in the winter and fall to coincide with the school calendar year.

Areas of Study

PEACE Youth Leadership Program participants will participate in several activities involving the following areas:

  • A day in the life of a Police Officer
  • Leadership and planning for your future
  • Black History Education
  • Indigenous Awareness
  • Tour of Humanity provided by the Simon Wiesenthal Centre
  • Hands on demonstrations and scenarios provided by our Training Bureau and Emergency Services Unit
