Be Part of the ProKids Young Professionals Group
PKYP is a group of active people who are dedicated to stopping the cycle of child abuse in the Greater Cincinnati area. Our goal is to raise young professionals’ awareness of child abuse and to support ProKids mission of helping Hamilton County’s foster children find safe, permanent homes.
PKYP was founded in 2011 by professionals who wanted to help foster children but whose limited time prevented them from taking on the casework required to serve as CASA Volunteers (Court Appointed Special Advocates). PKYP provides its members the flexibility and opportunity to share their energy and talents so they can make a difference in our community. It also happens to be a great way to network, develop leadership skills and meet new friends.
Join us for our 5th Annual ProKids Young Professionals Birthday Bash!
Celebrate PKYP’s 5th Birthday by giving the gift of school supplies and backpacks to ProKids children! Join us on Tuesday, June 7th from 6:30pm to 9:30pm at Ché in OTR and help us reach our goal to provide packed backpacks to 300 ProKids children this school year. In 2015, 97% of ProKids’ children were on-track to achieve their educational goals and this impressive outcome is due in part to a child’s successful start to the year with the supplies they need. Tickets can be purchased online and each includes two drinks, a light dinner, and one raffle entry. If you are unable to attend and would like to sponsor a child’s backpack, you donate to our school supply drive.
