GVPF Programs

The Greater Victoria Police Foundation has a suite of programs available to regional youth, at no cost.

Police Camp

The GVPF’s Police Camp, modelled after the successful program that ran in the Capital Region from 1996 to 2014, is a leadership program for youth that connects them with officers from the Greater Victoria region.


Mentorship Program

The GVPF’s Mentorship Program aims to support, empower and inspire youth through facilitating trust-based and respectful mentorship connections with police officers from Greater Victoria.

GVPF Awards at Camosun College

The GVPF Awards at Camosun College recognizes four students from the Capital Region who have demonstrated a strong commitment to volunteerism, leadership and mentorship within their community.

Why Youth?

Youth are the leaders of tomorrow and the individuals who will continue to drive our society forward. It is important to ensure that they have the skills, confidence and opportunities they need to fulfill their potential, be their best selves and live their best lives.

It is also critical to intervene early enough to help those that might stray down the wrong path to get back on a more positive one. While there are a number of agencies doing great work with youth already, police have a unique role in helping to develop youth leadership and competencies. The Greater Victoria Police Foundation intends to work where there are gaps in programming and is open to collaboration.
