About the

    Five Days of Action

The Five Days of Action is a week designed to raise awareness and inspire adults to take action to protect children from sexual abuse.


Led by the YMCA Guardians for Child Protection, the goal is to engage communities, improve internal operations, and advance policy and environmental change to protect youth from sexual abuse. 

Throughout the week of April 13-17, 2020 YMCAs and youth serving organizations all across the country will come together to spread prevention messages on social media, host events to train parents and community volunteers, and educate the community about keeping youth safe from sexual abuse. 


Last year was the biggest year yet for Five Days of Action, with 428 participating YMCAs, 160 participating partners, and 49 states represented. With 2020 right around the corner, it’s time to mark your calendars and start thinking about what Five Days of Action can look like in your community.


Register today to ensure you don't miss any of the planning fun, including the release of the kit and other support materials you may find helpful. Come together with hundreds of youth-serving organizations to make your community a safer place for the kids you serve!
