Police and MC officials on Friday enrolled 23 youths at the Sector-17 police station, who will be interviewed on Wednesday. The Young Men's Christian Association and Red Cross society are also collaborators in the programme.
Those enrolled will have to undergo a 45-day physical training. They will be taught basic skills of fire and emergency services, and policing.
“Interested people can get themselves registered by December 12,” said an MC official.
Sub-Inspector Meher Kaur said, “These people need something to get out of their usual lifestyle. This will put them at a better place in society”.
Raj Kumar, a 19-year-old resident of Bapu Dham Colony, said, “I came to know about the course by word of mouth. So, I came along with my friends. I wanted to earn some money and also to get into a government job. They have promised us a stipend of Rs 5,000 initially, which will be raised later”.
