Chief Devon Clunis was among a handful of Winnipeg Police Service members to join Pierre-Luc Labbe and Chris Cvetkovic of the Winnipeg Blue Bombers and members of the 4Life Foundation for a midday game of basketball St. John’s High School.

St. John’s is the Chief’s former high school and one of the schools participating in the 4Life Foundation program.

The 4Life Foundation is a non-profit charity working to make a difference in Canadian neighbourhoods by providing opportunities for at-risk youths through sport, education, music and dance.

The Winnipeg Police Service formally announced its plans to partner with the 4Life Foundation in February. Since that time, about 1,000 young people have taken part in the programing that is being offered through the six participating core area schools:

  • Dufferin School
  • William Whyte Community School
  • David Livingstone Community School
  • Hugh John McDonald Junior High
  • R.B. Russel Vocational High School
  • St. John’s High School

Testimonials and feedback from the children and youths have indicated that the program has had a very positive effect on their lives.

“You cops and those football guys that come are acting like a big uncle,” as was the way one youngster participating in the program explained it.

A school administrator acknowledges that the “4Life” approach has given one formerly high needs/at risk student a new found determination for his education.

The Winnipeg Police Service is dedicated to playing an integral part in supporting our children and youth. Two current Blue Bomber Players work for “4Life” and attend all the Winnipeg programs with Police and Cadets to form relationships and be part of the mentoring process.

“We are fortunate to have committed partners such as the City of Winnipeg Community Services Department, Central Neighborhoods Development Corporation, as well as the administration and staff of numerous schools located in the heart of our city to make this possible,” said Sgt. Danny Boyko, who oversees Winnipeg Police Service's involvement with the program.
