The safety of our Little Brothers and Sisters is of paramount concern, which is why our staff – all staff – are trained in abuse prevention, detection and reporting. It’s why our largest team is comprised of dedicated, Master’s level clinicians whose job it is to work closely to screen volunteers. It’s why a clinician is assigned to each Big/Little match, conferring with child, parent and volunteer around safety, fielding questions, trouble-shooting concerns.
And it’s why the agency conducts a series of ongoing background and driving record checks on all staff, board and volunteers.
