Child Safety & Transparency

The safety, protection and well being of our young members, staff and volunteers are always our absolute highest priorities. In addition to having a Board of Trustees Safety Committee, we adhere to the safety protocols and guidelines set forth by Boys & Girls Clubs of America. In response to the coronavirus pandemic, we have implemented safety practices, installed safety equipment, and provide our staff and Club members with personal protective equipment to meet City of Chicago and CDC guidelines.

We know that our supporters are caring and conscientious, and have the right to know how their funding is helping our organization and its 15,000 Club youth. Here at Union League Boys & Girls Clubs, we embrace the importance of keeping our supporters informed of what is happening at the Clubs since we are all building great futures together. We provide regular updates and E-Newsletters and offer opportunities to see the Clubs in action for yourself (please note: due to the pandemic and CDC guidelines, we still have larger Club tours on pause. We are giving some smaller individual tours for the safety of our Club members.)
