Greensburg YMCA Code of Conduct
The Greensburg Y strives to provide a safe and welcoming environment for all members, guests, and program participants. To promote safety and comfort for everyone, all individuals are asked to act appropriately at all times when in our facilities or participating in our programs.
We expect persons using the Y to act maturely, to behave responsibly, and to respect the rights and dignity of others. Our Code of Conduct lists examples of prohibited actions. Such actions include, but are not limited to, the following:
- Using, possessing, buying, selling, or delivering alcohol or illegal substances on Y property, in Y vehicles, or at Y sponsored programs;
- Smoking on Y property – the Y and its property is a smoke-free environment;
- Carrying or concealing a weapon and/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 profanity, angry or vulgar language, name-calling or shouting;
- Sexually explicit conversation or behavior; any sexual contact with another person on Y property, in Y vehicles or at Y sponsored programs;
- Unsafe or inappropriately distracting, immodest, or sexually revealing attire;
- Theft or behavior that results in the destruction or loss of property or injury to a person;
- Loitering within or on grounds of the Y;
- Engaging in conduct that unreasonably interferes with another member or staff person’s enjoyment of the Y;
- Use of cell phone and other electronic devices in restrooms, showers, and locker rooms at all Y facilities.
Members, guests and program participants are encouraged to take responsibility for their personal comfort and safety by kindly asking any person whose behavior threatens their comfort or unreasonably interferes with their enjoyment of the Y to refrain from such behavior. Anyone who feels uncomfortable in confronting a person directly should report the behavior to a staff person. Y staff members are ready to be of assistance.
In order to carry out these policies, we ask that members, guests and program participants identify themselves to staff when asked. The Director of Member, Donor and Community Relations will investigate all reported incidents. The Y reserves the right, among other things, to deny access, revoke membership, and/or remove any person from the facility on the spot who violates any of the above behaviors, or any other behavior that may be detrimental to others.
