MyGenius Inc is committed to child safety.
We want children and young people to be safe, happy and empowered.
We support and respect all children and young people, as well as MyGenius Inc personnel who deliver its programs. This is to allow everyone to enjoy an open, safe and supportive learning environment when involved in our programs.
We listen to children and young people and actively encourage them to participate in the wider community. We encourage honesty and trust between children and young people, their families and the MyGenius Inc personnel.
We also value the support, encouragement and positive input of families and community into the lives of the children and young people in our programs.
We are committed to creating a safe physical and online environment in MyGenius Inc programs – off-site locations and online spaces used by MyGenius Inc are designed to increase child safety whilst also support a healthy community and positive interactions. Natural and vigilant observation, for example, decreases the opportunity and likelihood of harmful behaviour.
We take all allegations and concerns very seriously. We respond to them in line with our policies and procedures. We have legal and moral obligations to contact authorities when we are worried about a child or young person’s safety.
MyGenius Inc has a zero tolerance for child abuse.
MyGenius Inc believes that everyone within the MyGenius Inc community has a role to play in ensuring a safe environment for children and young people. This includes the MyGenius Inc Management Committee, contracted personnel, parents and carers, as well as the children and young people participating in MyGenius Inc programs. Our organisation adopts robust recruitment and contracting practices for all MyGenius Inc personnel.
We encourage all MyGenius Inc personnel to role model healthy and respectful relationships, attitudes and behaviour.
We have a code of conduct that sets out clear expectations for appropriate behaviour with children and young people. We ensure all MyGenius Inc personnel are screened and have applicable checks in place. They are supervised and trained in practices that reduce the risk of child abuse.
MyGenius Inc cooperates with relevant agencies across Australia in providing a framework for parents, communities, government and non-government agencies to work together to support children, young people and their families.
