April is Child Abuse Prevention Month, and YMCAs are helping to raise awareness of the need for everyone to play their role in preventing child abuse. Our Y serves thousands of children through youth development in aquatics and youth sports, day and overnight camps, child care, as well as membership and family programming.
We believe that children should be physically and emotionally safe everywhere they go. Because youth development is such a priority for us, and parents entrust us with their children’s development and safety while in our programs, we strive to ensure we are the safest possible places for children to learn, grow and thrive.
