Community Events

Events in Berks County

The Berks County Intermediate Unit maintains a connection with our community in Berks County and beyond. Throughout the year, the BCIU hosts events that are open to the public and invites the community to participate, from a 5k and fun run to more serious discussions about school safety. 

BCIU Apple A Day 5K

Join us on Friday, May 1, for the third annual BCIU Apple a Day 5K & Family Fun Run/Walk to benefit the United Way of Berks County!

The BCIU Apple a Day 5K is held on the campus of Penn State Berks. The race features prizes for the top male and female runners as well as the top three in each age bracket. The course is wheel-measured, and the race is professionally timed by Pretzel City Sports.

Keeping Kids Safe

For more than 10 years, the Berks County Intermediate Unit has brought experts in school safety and security to Berks County for the annual Keeping Kids Safe Symposium. Keeping Kids Safe is an opportunity for school administrators, counselors, psychologists, nurses, SAP, emergency response personnel, and community partners to hear from the leaders in the field. 

The next Keeping Kids Safe Symposium will be held on April 15, 2020. Our keynote speaker will be Dr. Lina Alathari. Dr. Alathari is the Chief of the U.S. Secret Service National Threat Assessment Center (NTAC), where she oversees the center’s targeted violence behavioral research program. The findings from these projects have identified behaviors, motives, and triggers of individuals who engage in various forms of violence, including school and workplace violence.
