UKids - Child Care Programs Advocacy Board
UKids - Child Care Programs is proud to host a monthly advocacy board during Spring and Fall semesters. As UKids - Presidents Circle was developed by students for students, we value the input and opinions that our student parents have to offer. The committee also includes valued partners that support our program including representivtives from the Associated Students of the University of Utah (ASUU), the office of then Dean of Students, the Center for Child Care and Family Resources, the Women's Resource Center, the Office of Risk Management, and the Child and Family Development Center.
Parents receive free child care during meetings and a $10 credit to their account for attending. Recipients of the CCAMPIS subsidy, school life scholarship, or middle income scholarship can attend meetings for 1 hour of volunteer time.
