Protecting children and providing safe spaces for them to learn, play and grow is central to the mission of every youth-serving organization. In 2013 the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children convened child safety experts and youth-serving organizations to discuss the issue of child sexual abuse in youth sports. Together they developed sound practices for keeping children safer. To help organizations better protect children, NCMEC launched Safe to Compete, a resource center for organizations to learn about the issue, engage with experts and share prevention tools.
