Kiwanis of Detroit Lakes Young Children Priority One Project
Young Children: Priority One (YCPO) is an ongoing service program of Kiwanis International, addressing the needs of young children. Kiwanis clubs are encouraged to carry out at least two YCPO projects per calendar year, though many clubs are able to do more—helping children, families, and communities with critical issues affecting youth.
YCPO projects are divided in to four categories: General, Maternal & Infant Health, Child Care and Development, Parent Education & Support and Safety & Pediatric Trauma.
With the help of our chairperson, Mike Fritz our Board selected an YCPO project for 2012: Becker County Human Services for summer camp for children in foster care. Stay tuned to hear about our 2013 project.
YCPO is an annual Kiwanis project to help make a difference in the lives of children. For more information about other cool YCPO projects go to: www.kiwanis.org
