About Our Staff: Screening, Selection and Training

 

Our staff is our most valuable asset. We select our staff based upon their experience, character and passion for working with youth. Our staff is reviewed semi-annually and detailed professional development plans are followed to ensure they are successful at providing excellent service to our participants.

We take the follwoing steps to make sure the staff and volunteers who work at the Boys & Girls Clubs of the Midlands are the right people to care for your children.

1. All adults that interact with our participants go through a thorough screening process that includes reference checks, a national back ground check, and a sex offender registry check. All adults go through this process annually. This includes both staff and volunteers.

2. Volunteers are always accompanied by a trained paid youth development professional, and never left alone with the participants.

3. All adults must sign in with a paid professional before entering our program.

All of our staff goes through ongoing training to ensure that your children are provided high quality services in a safe and fun environment. Your child’s safety is our number one priority.
