The Youth Services branch is the newest branch units of KRPA membership. The Youth Services branch will serve as a resource for Youth Camps, Early Childhood and Out of School Time Programs (Before/After School Programs) serving children from 3 to 14 years of age.  The branch will provide trainings, share best practices and serves as a networking opportunity for youth service professionals in licensed and unlicensed programs.

The other KRPA Branch groups are Aquatics, Administration, Park and Natural Resources, Park Law Enforcement, Recreation, and Sports. Branch leadership falls under an elected board. Throughout the year, the branch board will plan workshops and structure the specific educational track for that focus of professional activity during the annual KRPA Conference and Trade Show.  Branch board representatives also serve as a voice of KRPA leadership and provide advice and direction to its members related to industry resources.

Upon joining KRPA, members have an opportunity to participate in one or more branches (no limit) which also entitles their participation in the branch board election process.
