The Taylorville Kiwanis Club heard about Youth Protection Training for Kiwanis members, during their weekly luncheon Tuesday at the club’s new meeting place, the Taylorville Moose Lodge.
Kiwanis International now requires all Kiwanis Clubs to go thru this training so that children and youth at Kiwanis events are safe.
Former Taylorville Kiwanis Club president Michael Evanchak presented the training information to the club, citing that Kiwanis International has some 335-thousand youth members around the world. Evanchak noted to the club, that local Kiwanis Club members that work with youth in community projects, have a background check which is good for 2 years.
And, Evanchak also reviewed the medication, transportation, and social media policies as it pertains to children and youth the local Kiwanis Club serves.
The Taylorville Kiwanis Club is part of global organization of volunteers dedicated to improving the world one child and one community at a time. Weekly meetings are held Tuesdays at noon at their new meeting location, the Taylorville Moose Lodge. For information on the club, go to taylorvillekiwanis.com.
