Together, we are responsible for maintaining a vibrant, welcoming, inclusive, and, most importantly, safe environment for ALL students and families in our CYT Dallas community. All Office Staff, Teaching Artists, Artistic Team Members, and Volunteers are interviewed, extensively background checked through a National Search with continual 3-year monitoring, and undergo Child Abuse Protection Training with Certification. They are also Mandated Reporters, required by law to report any suspicion of abuse to a Child Protective Agency.
CYT, as a national organization, has also partnered with Kids Power
in an effort to train our staff, volunteers, and students of all ages, teaching skills for strong relationships and the prevention of harm. This training is ongoing.
We also encourage you to report any concerns that you may have regarding the safety or well-being of students, staff, or families to CYT Dallas through our Community Feedback Form
or directly to the appropriate agency in the resources below.
