Our Commitment

The YMCA of South Hampton Roads (YMCA) is committed to the highest possible standards of financially ethical, moral and legal business conduct. The YMCA requires directors, officers and employees to observe high standards of business and personal ethics in the conduct of their duties and responsibilities. All employees and representatives of the YMCA must practice honesty and integrity in fulfilling their responsibilities and comply with all applicable laws and regulations.

Taking action to prevent problems and improper conduct is part of the YMCA’s culture, and it is the responsibility of all directors, officers and employees to report the knowledge or suspicion of breaches in legal and ethical conduct. The YMCA urges employees and others involved with the YMCA to come forward with any such information, without regard to the identity or position of a suspected offender.

In line with this commitment and the YMCA’s commitment to open communication, the YMCA of South Hampton Roads has selected EthicsPoint to provide you with simple, risk-free ways to anonymously and confidentially report activities that might involve criminal conduct or violations of the YMCA’sPlaytime policies and procedures. All reports submitted through EthicsPoint will be handled promptly and discreetly with the objective of correcting the situation being reported.

Individuals filing reports through EthicsPoint may choose to identify themselves in their report or remain completely anonymous. To the extent possible, all reports are kept confidential. No retaliatory action on the part of the YMCA will be taken against individuals filing reports or seeking guidance on how to handle potential breaches of conduct.

Prior to making a report to EthicsPoint, you should make your best effort to resolve your concern through the YMCA’s administrative process and/or supervisory management. Staff members are always free and encouraged to contact the Vice President of Human Resources for further advice and counsel in these matters.  However, if the situation involves suspected illegal and/or unethical activity that you are not comfortable addressing directly, you are free to report the circumstances directly to EthicsPoint.
