We at the Uniontown Area YMCA take child safety very seriously. We have a Nationally certified and accredited Presidium Child Safety Guardian at our YMCA. We participate in an annual risk analysis to learn how we can keep our youth even safer. We have been certified in compliance with the YMCA national child safety standards. The name of every YMCA member nationally is run through the national sex offender registry every night. Anyone who shows up on the registry has their membership immediately and irrevocably terminated to ensure our children are safe.

In addition, all of our employees, not just our child care employees, have been fingerprinted and have completed federal and state background checks, including obtaining federal and state clearances and child abuse clearances. All employees have at least three hours of child abuse recognition and reporting training and testing, and our child care workers have more! The safety of all children in our community is of paramount importance.
