Van Ness Study Center is dedicated to providing a safe educational environment for those who participate in its activities, especially all minors. It does not tolerate any sexual or physical abuse on the part of staff, volunteers, or participants, including behavior that is objectively intimidating, either physically or verbally. Also, staff and volunteers do not provide any illegal substances to the students nor permit their use. Every adult staff or volunteer submits to background check and commits to follow a set of behavioral guidelines.
If you are aware of any abusive behavior, please report it immediately to the Director of the center. The Director of the Center in conjunction with the Center’s Board will promptly investigate and resolve any such complaints or reports. When necessary, the Director will inform the Directors of the Prelature of Opus Dei.
