Child Protection

The Alliance of Massachusetts YMCAs is dedicated to training its internal staff and volunteer as well as external partners in child abuse prevention. All 31 Massachusetts YMCAs are actively engaged in utilizing the Darkness to Light curriculum to build awareness in their communities to better respond to and prevent child sexual abuse. Along with this work, the majority of Massachusetts YMCAs self-audit their programs in order to prevent child sexual abuse.
