YMCA Guardians for Child Protection
We will be a crucial part of the solution in the prevention of child sexual abuse in our communities and we will have zero tolerance for abuse in the YMCA Movement. The Y Guardians will work to create a culture of safety by raising the bar for the Movement, increasing accountability for child protection, and positioning the YMCA as a leader in this area.
The YMCA Guardians for Child Protection are a group of YMCA CEOs committed to activating the power of the Y Movement – and other youth-serving organizations – to engage communities, improve internal operations and advance policy and environmental change to protect children from sexual abuse.
