Under the Keep Young Athletes Safe grant program, the U.S. Center for SafeSport will develop, implement and evaluate a series of programs and activities intended to address sexual, physical and emotional abuse of young athletes in the U.S. Olympic and Paralymic Movements. SafeSport's approach will include the implementation of a situational prevention approach program; the development of training programs aimed at educating the USOC nongoverning bodies (staff, volunteers, coaches, instructors) on mandatory reporting, related policies and safe sport practices; developing and disseminating policies and standards safeguarding athletes from all forms of abuse, including background screening for nongoverning body and USOC staff; and develop and implement a compliance program to oversee regular and random audits of 49 U.S. Olympic nongoverning bodies to ensure policies and procedures are followed correctly.
