Vendors and Third Parties


As the leading nonprofit dedicated to youth development, healthy living, and social responsibility, the YMCA of Metropolitan Chicago is committed to safeguarding the wellbeing of children and vulnerable adults. Our employees and volunteers are vigilant in protecting these individuals, utilizing strategies to prevent abuse—including physical, emotional, and sexual abuse--to the greatest extent possible.  We ask that all of our vendors and other third parties working with the YMCA of Metropolitan Chicago be aware of our policies and procedures regarding appropriate vendor/third party conduct, employee conduct, prevention of child abuse, and reporting of suspected child abuse. If you have any questions or need more information, please contact our Risk Management Department at 312.932.1200.

Additionally, if you become aware of a violation of policy or illegal activity and would prefer to anonymously or confidentially make a report, you are encouraged to use our helpline, which is hosted by an outside provider, EthicsPoint, at 855.249.5700 (toll-free).  For more information or to make a report online, visit
