The KID Young Professionals Board consists of a group of young professionals emerging in their careers around the Chicagoland area.
Our members are committed to KID’s mission of saving lives by enhancing transparency and accountability through safer product development, better education and stronger advocacy for children.
The board is a largely autonomous and self-governing group responsible for:
Expansion of fundraising activities (specifically by hosting additional formal and informal fundraising events)
Expansion of organization reach (specifically through connections to other young professionals and appropriate organizations)
Supporting KID through the Young Professional Board
The YPB is comprised of engaged young professionals in the Chicago area who have demonstrated strong leadership qualities and are committed to KID’s mission. Each member will be an enthusiastic representative and advocate for the organization, and should be dedicated to the success and growth of KID.
The mission of the YPB is to engage and encourage Chicago area young professionals to share resources, time, and talent to promote and fundraise to support KID. YPB members support KID by serving on committees to build membership and fundraise for KID, by partnering with staff and other YPB members to plan events and activities, and by sharing KID’s mission among their own network in order to expand KID’s base of support.
Join KID’s Young Professional Board
The YPB will meet quarterly to discuss current efforts, upcoming events, and general group updates. These meetings will also provide an opportunity for members to enrich their understanding of KID’s mission and activities, as updated information about KID programming efforts will be presented at each meeting.

Kids In Danger (KID) is a nonprofit dedicated to protecting children by improving children's product safety. KID was founded in 1998 when 16 month-old Danny Keysar was killed in a recalled portable crib in his licensed childcare facility. His parents founded KID so that no more children would be hurt or killed by dangerous, recalled products. Fifteen years after our founding, substantive improvements to children's product safety oversight are on the horizon. Be on the frontlines in working to strengthen the children's product safety system and in getting lifesaving safety information to the public!
