Youth Protection Week

2021 YP Week

 

Nothing is more important than the safety of the children Kiwanis serves. That’s why Kiwanis International dedicates a week each year to youth protection. In 2021, Youth Protection week is October 11-15, giving Kiwanis clubs the opportunity to conduct important youth protection training and evaluate the club’s compliance.

Kiwanis clubs are required to educate members annually on Kiwanis Youth Protection Policies and Procedures. The resources available during Youth Protection Week make it easy for your club to meet this prerequisite.

We appreciate your club’s efforts during Youth Protection Week and the commitment you share to protecting youth.

Educate members

Take time during the week to train members on youth protection during a Kiwanis club meeting. Club members also can use the online resources to complete the training on their own.

These resources are available at Kiwanis.org/youthprotection:

WATCH A RECORDED WEBINAR!

As a new resource this year, Kiwanis International hosted webinars for members, officers, volunteers and youth — all designed to educate about the importance of youth protection and to assist in training.

After completing training for the 2021-22 Kiwanis year, the club secretary should update the reporting dashboard.

Again, thank you for protecting youth — and the Kiwanians who work with them. You’re strengthening the Kiwanis family’s continuing status as a leader in building the next generation of service.
