About Donald W. Reynolds Boys & Girls Club

Our Mission & Vision

It is our mission to provide a safe place during the out-of-school time hours, where children are provided with opportunities to reach their full potential and encouraged to pursue their dreams.
Our vision is to provide high-quality youth programming that assures success is within reach of every participant, with all members on track to graduate from high school with a plan for the future, demonstrating good character and citizenship and living a healthy lifestyle.

Club Safety


At The Donald W. Reynolds Boys & Girls Club, Child Safety is No. 1.


Culture of Safety

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.


Safety Policies

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 Background Checks

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.

Required Immediate Reporting

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.

Mandatory Annual Safety Assessments

We complete a safety assessment each year to ensure we continually make improvements to safety at our Club.

Safety Trainings

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.
