Child protection strategy
JLD community events in which children participate are developed and run in partnership with school administrators/officials, local and/or government agencies. The respective partners bear primary responsibility for the welfare of the participating children. It is our responsibility to provide trained and vetted volunteers fully committed to safeguarding children’s rights and protection from abuse. The welfare of children in our community programs is paramount, and we take seriously the duty of care from JLD and our community partners. This duty extends to every JLD member participating in our community programs who must be aware of their responsibility to report any concerns. All suspicions and allegations of abuse will be taken seriously and will be responded to in a swift and appropriate manner.
The Junior League of Detroit is an organization that supports equal opportunities and equal access to services for all. We will provide equal opportunity in service delivery regardless of ethnic origin, nationality, religion, gender, sexual orientation, marital status, disability, age, social class or any other preference or status protected by law.
