These symbols stand for Know-See-Respond. This symbol is a conversation starter for staff, parents and guardians to talk about child protection. As we mentioned, our staff is fully trained on how to protect children. Please ask them about it. When we KNOW how abuse happens and SEE the warning signs we can RESPOND quickly to prevent it. Together we can foster a culture of child abuse prevention.
I urge you to talk to your children regularly about their experiences at the Greater Houston YMCA. Ask them about their instructors. If, as a result, there is ever a concern regarding the safety and protection of your child, please notify our team immediately. You can also contact your YMCA center executive.
Together, we can keep our children safe and cultivate the values, skills and relationships that lead to positive behaviors, better health and educational achievement.
Thank you for being a part of our Y family.
