JR. Park Ranger Program
The Norwalk Department of Public Safety Junior Park Ranger Program is a community outreach program for children ages 7 to 12. JPR is focused on providing children with life skills and values that will allow them to be successful at home, in the classroom and out in the community. The goal is to educate youth on a variety of topics such as teamwork, responsibility, respect, making good decisions, effective communication skills and personal safety practices while making them aware of social issues such as peer pressure, bullying at school, cyberbullying, gangs and illegal drugs. JPR incorporates fun outdoor games, arts and crafts activities that coincide with the topic of the day, one offsite field trip and visits to their local Norwalk Sheriff’s Station and Fire Stations. JPR is offered two sessions during a calendar year, February through March; June through July from 9:30 a.m. to 11:00 a.m.
