Opportunity for Clinton Youth

A Great Opportunity for Clinton Youth sponsored by The Clinton Police Department
Policemen on Bike

The Clinton Police Department is looking for young adults ages 14-18 to participate in the Clinton Police and Youth Program. We began this program with students from The Morgan School in 2016/2017 and it was a complete success.

The program was developed so that our police officers can interact with the youth in our community to provide a positive role model and mentoring relationship. The program is designed to increase youth’s perception of social support and the perception of police as role models. The goals of our program are to increase youth social competence, resistance skills and conflict skills and to teach them to work together to choose activities and to implement community projects. To also increase positive youth and community connections and to increase youth feeling of being accepted, valued and supported in their community.

The program will be divided into three different areas; recreation, interaction/discussion and community service. This past year, the group went go-kart racing, snow tubing, rope climbing,  Empower Leadership Action Course and to Lake Compounce. The group offered community service opportunities by working in the Clinton food pantry and students enjoyed one on one time with our officers. Food was also provided at every meeting and outing.

The program is approximately 30 weeks long and will coincide with the school year.  The group will meet twice a month at the Clinton Police Department after school. We are looking for 15 students to join the program.  The same officers will be with the program from the beginning to the end.

We hope that you and your child will consider joining the Police and Youth Program. Our goal is to learn as much from students as they will from us.

If you think your child may be interested or you have questions about the program, please contact Robert Sepega at the Clinton Police Department by August 20, 2018.
