Code Of Conduct For Members And Guests
The MONROEVILLE AREA YMCA is committed to providing a safe and welcoming environment for all members and guest. To promote safety and comfort for all, members and guest are ask to act appropriately at all times while in our facility or participating in our programs.
We expect our members and guest to act maturely, behave responsibly, and respect the rights and dignity of others.
Please refrain from the following:
•Using or possessing alcohol or illegal chemicals on YMCA property, in YMCA vehicles, or at YMCA-sponsored programs.
•Smoking on YMCA property-all YMCA properties are smoke-free environments.
•Carrying or concealing a weapon or any device or object that may be used as a weapon.
•Harassment or intimidation by words, gestures, body language, or any type of menacing behavior.
•Physical contact with another person in an angry, aggressive, or threatening way.
•Verbally abusive behavior, including angry, profane or vulgar language, swearing, name-calling or heated shouting.
•Sexually explicit conversation or behavior (any physical contact that is sexual in nature with another person is unacceptable.)
•Inappropriate, immodest or sexually revealing attire.
•Theft or behavior that results in the destruction or loss of property.
•Use of camera phones to take pictures in YMCA or on YMCA property.
In addition, the YMCA reserves the right to deny access or membership to any person who has been accused or convicted of any crime involving sexual abuse, is or has been a registered sex offender, has ever been convicted of any offense relating to these, sale, possession, or transportation of narcotics or habit forming and/or dangerous drugs, or is presently or habitually under the influence of dangerous drugs or chemicals, narcotics, or intoxicating beverages.
Members and guest are encouraged to take responsibility for their personal comfort and safety by asking any person whose behavior threatens their comfort to refrain from such behavior. Anyone who feels uncomfortable in confronting a person directly should report the behavior to a staff person or the Building Supervisor on duty. YMCA staff members are eager to be of assistance. Members and guest should not hesitate to notify a staff member if help is needed.
The YMCA Chief Executive Officer (or his designee) will investigate all reported incidents. The CEO may suspend or terminate YMCA membership privileges, if in his judgement a violation of the YMCA Members Code of Conduct has occurred.
