The Y is a safe place for kids and families

At the YMCA of Greater Boston, the safety of the children and families in our community is our top priority. We provide childhood education programs, afterschool programs, camp, sports programming, swim lessons and childwatch at many of our branches. We are proud and respectful of the trust parents place in the YMCA of Greater Boston. A safe environment for children combined with quality programming is part of our focus on youth development, healthy living, and social responsibility.

All Y staff are trained in the identification and prevention of child abuse. Branches use software to screen against sex offenders so when you enter the Y, you have peace of mind that your child’s safety is taken seriously.
