THE Y WORKS TO ENSURE ALL CHILDREN ARE PROTECTED
The Northfield Area Family YMCA’s commitment to providing a safe environment for every individual who engages with us—especially children—is essential to our mission, reputation, and our viability as an organization.
To meet the promise of our mission and cause, and to continue the Y’s leadership on these important social issues, we must do everything in our power to ensure the safety of everyone who enters our facilities and/or participates in our programs.
All Y team members who have contact with children must complete a background screening. They will also go through training on recognizing, reporting, and preventing child abuse.
MEMBERS AND GUESTS
We also screen all members, and guests against a national sex offender registry to allow us to continue to provide a safe, welcoming environment for every person at the Northfield Area YMCA.
All Y volunteers who have contact with children must complete a background screening.
