YouthOne Legal Notice

Effective June 2023

YouthOne (“YO”) is a national organization that serves local independent member organizations (“Local  YouthOne Chapters”). Together  YouthOne and Local  YouthOne Chapters form one of the nation’s largest networks of local youth organizations.  YouthOne Chapters are dedicated to promoting the health, social, educational, vocational and character development of youth throughout the United States of America.


Each  YouthOne Chapter organization is a separate legal entity; is governed by an independent board of directors, executive committee, or other governing body; and is solely responsible for its own affairs, including, but not limited to, matters of safety, compliance with federal, state, and local laws, physical facilities, uses of technology, finances, policies and programs, and personnel policies and decisions. Each Local  YouthOne Chapter has sole authority to hire, terminate, prescribe the duties of and establish the terms of employment of its employees and officers.


As the national organization,  YouthOne has no authority with respect to the policies or decisions of Local  YouthOne Chapters. Accordingly, each Local  YouthOne Chapter controls its own affairs, and  YouthOne does not control and cannot be held responsible for the actions of Local  YouthOne Chapters.

Information You Provide Directly:

We respect your privacy as our online guest, and we will not collect any identifying or personal information about you while you are here except as set forth in this Privacy Policy.

YouthOne may collect personal information from you when you register with this site or sign up for a program (Alumni & Friends, etc.), initiative, or event. YouthOne also may ask you for personal information at other times, such as when you ask a question, submit a comment, or report a problem with this site. If you contact YouthOne, YouthOne may keep a record of that session or correspondence, including a record of your e-mail address. YouthOne may also occasionally ask users to complete surveys for research purposes.

YouthOne collects any information that you provide in such circumstances, including any personal information.

We may also ask you for identifying and personal information to:

  • Inform you of new services, changes or promotions, directly or via a third-party advertising or social media network: For the purposes of improving the relevancy and targeting of marketing, the information collected may be provided to third-party advertising or social media networks to generate “lookalike” or custom audiences.  This activity is governed by the network’s own privacy policy and terms and conditions.

  • Invite you to receive periodic e-mail updates about our progress: When you accept, or “opt in,” we ask you to give us your e-mail address and respond to some questions that help us tailor our information to your interests. You can "opt out" of receiving these periodic updates at any time.

  • Processing any online donations you make to YouthOne: When you make an online donation, we ask you for your name, address, telephone number, email address, and credit card information.

  • Processing registration information for online sweepstakes or contests on the YouthOne website: When you agree to give us identifying and personal information for online sweepstakes or contents, you are giving that information to YouthOne in accordance with the applicable contest rules, and the parties we have involved in operating this site. You are giving it solely to enable the services this site provides.

How YouthOne Shares the Information It Collects

How YouthOne Shares the Information It Collects

YouthOne understands the importance of privacy and confidentiality to users of this site.  YouthOne may provide the information it collects through this site to third parties who provide services on YouthOne's behalf and, with your permission, to YouthOne’s business partners. For example, we use one or more third-party financial institutions to process our credit card transactions. They receive the credit card number and other personal information of our donors only to verify credit card numbers and to process credit card transactions in a secure environment. We also occasionally hire other companies to perform limited services on our behalf. We only provide those companies the information they need to deliver the service and prohibit them from using that information for any other purpose. Aggregated, depersonalized traffic data is shared with certain advertisers to optimize campaigns.


From time to time, YouthOne may also share donor names and email/mailing addresses with other reputable nonprofit organizations on a limited basis in exchange for limited access to the names, email, and addresses of their constituents. We have found this is a cost-effective method of reaching additional potential constituents. These organizations will not have continued access to your name and address unless you choose to respond to their initial mailing. We do not share mobile/cell phone data in connection with this list exchange. YouthOne never sends out mailings on behalf of other organizations. 


We respect our donors’ choices and control over their information. You, as a donor, may, at any time, have your name excluded from any donor list exchange activity.  To ask that your name be excluded from list exchange activity or to otherwise change how YouthOne contacts you, please email us at


YouthOne may disclose information it collects through this site when required to do so by a court, regulatory agency, subpoena, law, regulation, or other body of competent jurisdiction and authority, and for administrative and other purposes that YouthOne deems necessary to maintain, service, and improve its products and services and to protect its rights and property. Finally, if you become involved in any violation of security, violation of this website’s Terms of Use, or violation of any party’s or third party’s rights, YouthOne may release information about you to assist in investigating, resolving, or remediating any such incidents.

Integrity and Security (SSL)

Use of SSL and Encryption. In order to enhance privacy and security, YouthOne maintains a current Secure Socket Layer (SSL) Encryption Certificate on official YouthOne Sites that permit a donor or supporter to provide their personal data.
