Confidentiality or the protection of children's and/or adults rights is an important tool in the treatment of these groups. Under no circumstances will the names of the children or adults, their problems, their conversations with staff or volunteers, their personal or family background be discussed with anyone outside BGCSCT. This prohibition includes discussions with other volunteers and staff who are not directly servicing the families or the Club members.
Volunteer seeking to gather or share information must first obtain a written release of confidentiality that is signed by a responsible adult directly related to the child, the Club, or the family, The accumulation of information or information sharing must only take place with the supervision of BGCSCT staff and must be directly related to the services performed in the capacity of a volunteer with BGCSCT. If a youth wants to share information with you but request the you not share it with anyone else, it is a good practice to inform the youth that you need to share it with other staff memebers. The it is up to the youth to determine if he or she wishes to continue the conversation. This practice will protect you from the manipulation on the part of the youth and protect the youth from a breach of confidentiality by you. If you have further questions, please feel free to discuss with Site Director.
