Providing a safe environment and creating a culture of safety for every person the Y engages is essential to our mission, cause, and viability as an organization. This commitment is underscored in a membership qualification that establishes minimum safety practices for YMCAs in the area of child abuse prevention.

YMCA of the USA’s (Y-USA) partnership with Praesidium provides all YMCAs access—free of charge—to enhanced tools and services for strengthening Child Abuse Prevention efforts.
