About Us

Vision: To make Genesee County the best place to raise children
Mission: To improve the quality of life for children and families in Genesee County through assessment, awareness, advocacy and action

Priority Children is multi-issue, county-based child advocacy organization.

We are recognized as an informed and unbiased advocate on a broad range of issues that affect the well-being of youth in our county, including opportunity youth, mental health, poverty and abuse and neglect.

Our signature role involves making connections and sharing knowledge across organizations, coalitions, and initiatives, thereby extending the reach and impact of existing services and leveraging resources to their fullest capacity.

Summer Youth Expo






The summer Youth Expo has come and gone, but it was just the beginning of a great summer in Genesee County!

We hope you were able to make it to the 2018 Summer Youth Expo, a collaboration between Priority Children, The Weiss Child Advocacy Center, WOWoutreach, and the Sylvester Broome Empowerment Village. This event serves each year as a way for parents to connect with programs and agencies in person. This year families across Genesee County were able to meet with community leaders, educators, and providers while getting access to resources, and of course, have some fun!

If you weren’t able to make it, no worries, you still have access to the dynamic and diverse range of programs available to children and teens birth to 18. Please take a look at our community Summer Youth Expo Guide below to find more information on 2018 Summer Youth Programs in Genesee County.

Summer Youth Expo Guide


The Summer Youth Expo helps families with children from birth to college age connect with local organizations providing free and low-cost summer activities, including arts and music programs, science and sports camps, job training programs, community service opportunities and much more. Parents and children are able to learn more about each of the opportunities available, and for some, enroll on site! This FREE event also has music, bounce houses, snacks, prizes and more! Sign Language Interpreters are available.
