Know the Facts about Child Abuse
The YMCA of Greater Brandywine works in partnership with parents and guardians of children participating in our programs to protect them from abuse. We believe that all children deserve the opportunity to discover who they are and what they can achieve in an environment that allows them to feel physically and emotionally safe.
Our Y has over two thousand staff members and volunteers working with youth in many different programs. These individuals participate in annual training to help identify and prevent abuse. Abuse does not have to happen.
Visit the link below to view our useful guide: Protect your Child from Abuse. This guide details some of the things we do as an organization to create a safe space and offers information and guidance for parents on how to talk to your child about his or her personal safety.
On the last page of the Guide, you will find contact information for resources at our Association and for local helplines.
