The article analyzes the activities of the Relief Society for Ukrainian School Youth in the Interns’ Camps in Poland, which was created by a group of elders to assist the students of the Kalisz-Szczypіornо camps to the soldiers of the interned Army of the Ukrainian People’s Republic. Thanks to well-placed information action and perseverance of the members of the Society, a large part of Ukrainian immigrants responded to the call for help of school youth, Ukrainian public organizations, some of the Galician and Volynians. It was also important that the Society not only provided money and material assistance to students and lecturers of the camp schools, but also invested in creating profitable organizations, thus obtaining additional cash receipts, as well as creating jobs for the interned. The company used any opportunity to raise funds, arranging, in particular, «Days of School» in the camps with a lottery in its favor. Honorary members of the company, who were currently in other European countries, joined the collections of funds. The activities of the Society ceased only with the abolition of the camps (August 1924), but by that time it continued to provide material assistance to the needy Ukrainian soldiers in the camps, as well as the children of the interned to the full exhaustion of his available means.
