ABOUT YOU
Address:
(A conviction will not necessarily bar employment. The YMCA may consider the nature, date and circumstances of the offenses.)

Notice to All Volunteer Applicants: The YMCA strictly enforces its policies and practices to prevent child abuse.

Allegations or suspicions of child abuse are taken very seriously at the YMCA and will be reported to the proper authorities for investigation. We have abuse reporting procedures, there are unscheduled visits from supervisors, we have an open door for parents, and we have a code of conduct for staff. We minimize opportunities for abuse to occur and we talk with children about personal safety and touching limits. We also screen carefully to prevent abusers from being hired and program volunteers will meet with their direct supervisor to follow through on abuse prevention overview.
