Youth Guidance – Our Privacy Policy & Promise to You

Conducting business honestly and protecting your privacy are important to our organizational values. Youth Guidance is committed to protecting the personal information of all donors, volunteers, supporting organizations and community partners.

We protect your information and require that it be held in strict confidence.

We use your information only for its intended business purpose. We do not sell or trade your information to other organizations or individuals.

We respect your confidentiality.

Online donations and event registrations are transmitted via a secure server using encryption technology. Some online forms on our website are created with third party software through non-proprietary contracts we hold.  We only use trusted registration software provider(s) that also utilize encryption technology.

On occasion, we may allow access to your information to specific funding sources, only as mandated by contractual requirements.  We are diligent in our efforts to ensure that your information is never compromised in any way.

We maintain accurate records.  Should you choose to send us an email, we may retain the contents of your message, our reply and your email address as part of our ongoing service and follow-up efforts. We reserve the right to contact you after you have contacted us and may send future communications to you about our organization.  Please notify us via email if you wish to discontinue electronic communication.  This includes opt-outs for our newsletter and donation messages.

Upon written request, we will gladly remove your personal information from our databases, except where legislation or regulation requires that we retain it (for example, charitable giving history tied to income tax receipts.)

If you have any questions about our website or our privacy policies, please contact the Youth Guidance Central Office at (312) 253-4900 or email us at
