Child Safety at Boys & Girls Clubs

The safety of young people at Boys & Girls Clubs is always our top priority. Youth who are mentally and physically safe are better able to learn, grow, and thrive. Boys & Girls Clubs of America works continuously to enhance safety policies, practices, and trainings to ensure they are centered on youth’s needs. There is nothing more important to us than keeping children safe and protected.

Boys & Girls Clubs do not tolerate inappropriate behavior of any kind, including child sexual abuse or misconduct. From strict adherence to policies and guidelines within Club facilities and staffing structure, to equipping young people with the critical thinking and social-emotional skills to make healthy, safe choices, ensuring Club members are safe is the first step to their success.

Boys & Girls Clubs of America advocated for the passage of the U.S. PROTECT ACT, which improved background screening systems and access, and is proud to partner with the following organizations to develop safety practices that benefit ALL youth-serving organizations.
The National Children’s Advocacy Center was the first Child Advocacy Center in the world, and there is nothing more important to us than the safety of youth. In this capacity, I have proudly served on Boys & Girls Clubs of America’s National Child & Club Safety Task Force since 2012 and seen firsthand the organization’s investment in safety and commitment to strong youth protection policies, immediate reporting and long-term strategy, as well as their dedication each day to creating a safe and supportive home-away-from-home for kids.

The Florida Alliance of Boys & Girls Clubs strongly believes in the idea that Boys & Girls Clubs are a safe-haven for children, where they are able to “become” and positively evolve into who they are meant to be. The Florida Alliance of Boys & Girls Clubs allows Clubs across the state of Florida to interact and come together under the common goal of inspiring children to follow their dreams and be the best they can be.

A Positive Place for Kids

The mission of the Florida Alliance of Boys & Girls Clubs is to raise and sustain statewide funding for member organizations to help them enable all young people, especially those who need us most, to reach their full potential as productive, caring, responsible citizens.
