To ensure safety, the organization prohibits all one-on-one interactions between youth and staff and volunteers, including board members. Our One on One Interaction Policy states that:
Staff/Volunteers shall not:
Exceptions may only be made when delivering medical or counseling services by a licensed, trained therapist, or similar professional or in an emergency. All exceptions will be documented and provided to Club leadership.
Staff shall immediately inform Club leadership if a staff member, volunteer, or board member violates this policy. Should any adult staff, volunteer, or board member violate this policy, the Organization will take appropriate disciplinary action, up to and including termination.
Additional Policies for Club Member Safety Include:
When kids don’t feel safe and supported, they are unable to learn, grow, or develop resiliency skills that will aid them throughout their lives. Boys & Girls Clubs create a refuge, a second home, and a safe space where young people have the freedom to focus on reaching their full potential. Our commitment to the safety of young people is unyielding, and we will never stop doing whatever it takes to protect kids.
