Awards to USA YMCAs, Nonprofit resident camps, Boys & Girls Clubs, and Jewish Community Centers to recognize effective child abuse prevention measures. Winners must exemplify excellence in innovation and leadership in practice around the critical topic of prevention of child sexual abuse.
The Redwoods Group Foundation will make financial awards using the 10 Child Safe Standards as its guideposts—with a particular focus on principle number one (“child safety is embedded in institutional leadership, governance and culture”). The Foundation hopes to learn about and encourage innovative and creative ways organizations across the country are protecting children from child sexual abuse—both within their walls and in the communities they serve.
The Excellence in Child Protection Awards will be awarded to organizations demonstrating innovative, consistent, effective deployment of measures to prevent and keep children safe from child sexual abuse.
The Champion of Children Award will be awarded to an organization who exemplifies superb leadership on child protection and is a shining example of an innovative culture of safety.
The following are examples of practices that demonstrate baseline institutional leadership and child-safe culture:
Winners will actively engage in the practices noted above, and demonstrate taking some of these practices to a higher level.
Winners are encouraged to use award funds to expand their culture of safety.
