CYT Phoenix Commitment to Safety
We believe that CYT Phoenix can be truly safe only when every student is assured a safe community without fear of harassment for any reason including: differing religious views, race, orientation or identity, nationality and physical and/or mental differences. Harassment, whether in-person or via social media and other online mediums will not be tolerated. We promote an environment of safe, non-judgmental and healthy relationships.
Together, we are responsible for maintaining a vibrant, welcoming, inclusive and, most importantly, safe environment for ALL students and families in our CYT Phoenix community. All Office Staff, Teaching Artists, Artistic Team Members and Volunteers are interviewed, extensively background checked through a National Search with a continual 3 year monitoring and undergo Child Abuse Protection Training with Certification. They are also Mandated Reporters, required by law to report any suspicion of abuse to a child protective agency.
We, as a national organization, have also partnered with Kidpower
in an effort to train our staff, volunteers and students of all ages, teaching skills for strong relationships and the prevention of harm. This training is on-going.
We also encourage you to report any concerns that you may have regarding the safety or well-being of students, staff or families of CYT Phoenix at the bottom of this page in our Community Feedback Form or directly to the appropriate agency in the resources below.
