Safety is Our Number One Priority

THERE IS NOTHING MORE IMPORTANT THAN THE SAFETY OF OUR CLUB MEMBERS.

Boys & Girls Clubs of Malibu continually updates and innovates robust safety policies, programs and training for Club staff and volunteers that are designed to protect young people from threats that are present in our society. Through our Board Led Safety Committee and National Child + Club Safety Department we implement layers of safety policies and guidelines to keep our kids safe including:

 

Health-Risk Behaviors

Club teens are more likely to abstain from health-risk behaviors like alcohol and smoking than their peers nationally.*

Mentorship

Clubs provide safety, mentorship, and a sense of community during the critical out-of-school hours. 54% of Club alumni said the Club “saved my life.” *

Civic Leadership

Clubs help build a sense of civic responsibility and leadership. In fact, 8.3% of Club members believe they can make a difference in their communities and 89% stand up for what they think is right.*

At the Boys & Girls Clubs of Malibu, there is nothing more important than the safety of our Club members. We work every day to create a safe, fun, and interactive environment, so kids can have every opportunity to learn, grow, and be successful in life.

We do not tolerate inappropriate behavior of any kind, including child sexual abuse or misconduct. From strict adherence to policies and guidelines within Club facilities and staffing structure to equipping young people with the critical thinking and social-emotional skills to make healthy, safe choices, ensuring Club members are safe is the first step to their success.

For the nearly half a million young people who enter the doors of a Boys & Girls Club each day, Clubs offer safe, inclusive spaces and experiences that empower member’s learning and growth. Our data shows our approach works:
