Child & Club Safety
At the heart of the Boys & Girls Club mission is the commitment to provide safe places for children to grow and learn. A fundamental prerequisite for the fulfillment of our mission is ensuring the safety of the young people we serve.
Child & Club Safety Department & Team
To underscore and enhance our commitment to safety, BGCA established the Child & Club Safety Department. The goal of this department is to strengthen each local organization’s ability to protect its members and help position the Boys & Girls Club Movement as a national catalyst for the protection of all youth.
Child Safety Hotline – 866-607-SAFE (7233)
