Athletes for Change is dedicated to nurturing and protecting troubled teens by giving them a positive environment and exceptional role models to make their transition back into society successful and rewarding.
PREA The Prison Rape Elimination Act (PREA) is a federal law that supports the elimination, reduction, and prevention of sexual abuse in adult and juvenile facilities as well as community correction programs. Athletes For Change complies with all applicable PREA standards for juvenile facilities as established by law. We have a zero tolerance policy towards any form of conduct that meets the definition of sexual abuse or sexual harassment. The safety and well–being of our residents is our first concern and every employee is required to prevent, detect, and respond to such conduct. All residents have the right to be free from abuse, neglect, and exploitation. This includes not being subjected to sexually abusive and/or harassing behavior from staff, contractors, volunteers, and other residents.
