JoCo Community Partnerships for Protecting Children & Prevent Child Abuse
The Community Outreach Fairs in Iowa City (2), North Liberty, and Tiffin are coordinated by the Johnson County Community Partnerships for Protecting Children (JC-CPPC) and Prevent Child Abuse Johnson County (PCAJC), a joint effort of Johnson County, the Cities of North Liberty & Iowa City, parents, non-profit and for-profit agencies and businesses doing work to impact positive parent/child relationships in the areas of advocacy, resource-sharing, cultural awareness, small grant distribution, access, parent education, trauma-informed care, training, support systems, equity, and family teams.
CPPC/PCAJC typically hosts the annual Kites for Kids Festivals, so this is a replacement event. We have filled the outreach stations for each event location with local social service agencies/organizations and now we are seeking volunters to help admininster the event!

PLEASE ARRIVE NO LATER THAN 11:30 AM. Upon arrival, immediately check in with your location's EO and then help with the setup of the Welcome Station.
Organizations and event volunteers will be asked to assemble for a brief orientation at 11:45 AM near the Welcome Station, led by the EO.
The advertised times of each event will be 12:00 PM - 2:00 PM. Volunteers will be asked to continue through 2:30 PM and then help with teardown. The line will be cut off at 2:00 PM but - to make sure no one misses out - pods who show up at the end will be given the opportunity to visit with attending organizations, so we will need the help to continue.
Pandemic Pod ("Pod") = a group of people (family or friends) who have congregated during the pandemic on a regular basis. Some Pods are more risk-averse than others. For this event, individual Pods are going to progress through stations together. Pods may or may not be immediate family. For the purposes of this event, Pods may be no more than 8 people unless there is immediate relations.
Face masks will be required of all organizations, volunteers, and attendees. Please bring your own water bottles; you may bring food for yourself, but do not share.
In the event of rain or other inclement weather, there will be no make-up dates. Instead, we will do our best to market the remaining events.
Additional guidance on expectations, safety protocol, and activity limitations will be shared by your Event Organizer.
