The Donald W. Reynolds Boys & Girls Club is a non-profit 501 (C)(3) organization currently serving over 10,000 community members per year through memberships, special events, facility reservations and drop-in business. Formerly known as the Fayetteville Youth Center, the Club has over 75 years of service to youth and families in the local community.
At The Donald W. Reynolds Boys & Girls Club, Child Safety is No. 1.
The Donald W. Reynolds Boys & Girls Club continually updates robust safety policies, programs and training for our staff and volunteers that are designed to promote child safety and protect young people from threats that are present in our society. We implement layers of safety policies and guidelines to keep our kids safe.
The Donald W. Reynolds Boys & Girls Club has comprehensive safety policies in place that protect youth - including, but not limited to, supervision, transportation, communication and prohibiting private one-on-one contact.
Mandatory criminal background checks are required every year for every staff and board member at the Club. In addition, criminal background checks are required for any volunteer who has direct contact with children. All potential employees and volunteers are also run through the National Sex Offender Registry.
The Club's staff and volunteers are all mandated reporters. We are required to report any critical incident/safety concern to local authorities immediately. We are also required to report any critical incident to Boys & Girls Clubs of America within 24 hours.
We complete a safety assessment each year to ensure we continually make improvements to safety at our Club.
Ongoing training and supervision of staff is critical. We participate in a wide variety of child safety training. We also engage leading third-party safety experts to provide guidance for our policies and approaches, including Praesidium, the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children, and the National Children's Advocacy Center.
