Kiwanis International has declared the week of September 11 through 17 to be Youth Protection Week.
Nothing is more important than the safety and well-being of those we serve—and of the Kiwanians who serve them. That’s why Kiwanis International annually presents Youth Protection Week. 
An email with attachment containing the guidelines was sent out to all members on September 22nd. After completing the training, you and your fellow club members should be able to:
  • Understand the Youth Protection Guidelines.
  • Identify troubling behavior or abuse.
  • Respond appropriately if a child discloses abuse to you or if you witness troubling behavior.
Kiwanis members can also access to review it on their own time.

In addition, a summary of program elements may be found in the file download section of this home page, at "Youth Protection Guidelines."

The Cheyenne Kiwanis Club Foundation has been working to support construction of an accessible playground for all ages and abilities at Cheyenne' Cahill Park for two years now. Our Club President, Patty Benskin, has identified support of the project a priority for the Club as well. To learn more about the new playground, please see . The home page has two links to videos of existing accessible playgrounds for your information. Should you desire to help the project financially, there is also a link for that purpose.
Every little bit helps in getting this much needed facility built in Cheyenne.  Thanks for your support.

(Updated September 18th) The busy season is upon us. Please try to help out where and when you can.  These chairpersons are already working on their project/event.  Contact them with an offer to help out. Or just say to yourself,  "yes, I'll help" and then show up!  [At the very least, plan to help out with the Pancake Breakfasts and the Ribfest. These two projects require a lot of volunteers all at once.]
