Keeping Kids Safe

The safety and well-being of the children we serve is our highest priority.

All employees and volunteers undergo a thorough background check and training before they work at our Clubs. Our policies set boundaries for staff and volunteers to ensure the safety of our kids. These policies and procedures are reviewed regularly by an internal safety committee and evaluated using the national best practices of Boys & Girls Clubs of America, as well as Praesidium, a national leader in youth safety. 

Our staff and volunteers are trained to support any child or adult who comes forward with concerns about misconduct and to identify signs of abuse and to report it.

The Club has been in the news recently related to suspected misconduct in 1984. Please read our letter to the community here.

If you have a concern about the safety at a Club, please contact our Director of Operations, Christy Garner, garnerc@bgcsps.org.
