Child Protection Plan

The NJ YMCA State Alliance Child Protection Plan outlines policies within the four elements of screening and hiring, training, supervision, and feedback systems.

The NJ YMCA State Alliance Special Commission on Child Protection has developed and endorsed the policies and guidelines to guide YMCA programs across the state and minimize the potential for an abuse incident to occur. If an allegation does occur the YMCA will proactively work with the authorities and the family to respond in a prompt and empathetic manner.

Consultation with leading authorities and reports from YMCA of the USA, Praesidium, The Redwoods Group, and The YMCAs of Massachusetts Child Protection Plan has resulted in the collection of the policies and guidelines.
