The Boys and Girls Clubs of America play a valuable role in helping youth in their communities, particularly here in Orange County. The Boys and Girls Clubs have a history of helping youth in low-socioeconomic areas. Unfortunately, there have also been instances of employees and volunteers who have sexually abused children under their care.

Boys and Girls Clubs Can Be Outlets for Predators
There are over 4,000 Boys and Girls Clubs throughout this country, and nearly every separate organization is allowed to govern itself. This can lead to dangerous situations for the youth under their care, particularly when it comes to reporting sexual abuse. There have been instances of sexual predators getting away with abuse because the regulation of these clubs is not very centralized. Many allegations go uninvestigated.
Sexual abuse can occur in many different ways at Boys and Girls Clubs in America. Because the children in these organizations often come from lower socioeconomic backgrounds and single-family homes, the employees and volunteers of this organization often get to spend enormous amounts of time with the children they are entrusted with. This gives the adult abuse perpetrators a chance to groom children over time into sexual activities.
