Ozarks Regional YMCA joins 'Five Days of Action' to protect children from sexual abuse

Ozarks Regional YMCA is participating in the Five Days of Action through April 19, 2024. The Five Days of Action is a weeklong campaign to raise awareness and inspire adults to take action to protect children from sexual abuse. The week will include a social media campaign, Pledge to Protect cards signed by staff and community members, and dissemination of information and resources to support the efforts of this cause.


The Ozarks Regional YMCA encourages adults and organizations to join in marking this special week as the communities we serve come together to make them a safer place for children to live, learn and play. With summer right around the corner – when children gather for activities and camps, it is a wonderful time to bring attention to the simple ways we can all make the children in our communities safer.


“All children have the right to a happy and safe childhood, and it’s our responsibility as adults and organizations to stand up to protect that right,” said Megan McCormick, Vice President of Youth Development of Ozarks Regional YMCA. “By joining in the Five Days of Action campaign, we hope to inspire other organizations and members of our community to create safer spaces that protect children from sexual abuse.”


Ozarks Regional YMCA, along with other Ys across the country are encouraging adults to take the pledge to keep kids safe. Pledge cards can be signed at each of our YMCA locations, along with more information about KNOW.SEE.RESPOND. visit for locations. More details and resources about this campaign can be found at
