Privacy Policy


Through our web site, we offer convenient online access to our programs and services, and communicate with you about important opportunities and events. We will not collect personal information from you when you visit our web site unless you provide the information to us voluntarily and knowingly.

Registering for a program or special event: When you register online for a class or special event, we may ask for your name and contact information. Depending upon the activity, we may also collect payment information (such as standard credit card data) and date of birth.

Applying to work at Youth Opportunities Unlimited as a volunteer or employee: When you apply online to be a Y.O.U. volunteer, we will ask you for your name, contact information, and date of birth. We may ask for other data as well, depending on the volunteer activity. When you apply to be a Y.O.U. employee, we ask for a variety of types of data that are typical for employment applications, and we may ask for your resume.

Making a financial contribution: When you make a financial contribution online, we collect your name, contact information, and standard credit card data.


We send “cookies” to your computer and use other technologies to enhance your online experience. A “cookie” can be either permanent (i.e., it remains on your computer until you delete it) or temporary (i.e., it lasts only until you close your browser). A “cookie” is a small text file that helps us recognize repeat visitors, facilitate the visitor’s ongoing access to and use of the site, and track usage behavior and compile aggregate data that can lead to web site improvements. If you do not want information collected through the use of cookies, you can deny or accept the cookie feature using a simple procedure available in most browsers. If you block cookies, however, you may lose some website functionality.


If you provide Youth Opportunities Unlimited with personal information when you visit our web site, we may use the information in our programs and activities. We may enter your name into one of our databases so we can contact you to obtain your input, provide information about our programs and events, or request contributions.


Youth Opportunities Unlimited welcomes youth to learn more about our organization and, where appropriate, find opportunities to serve their communities through programs, employment and volunteer activities. However, we encourage youth to do this only with their parent’s knowledge and supervision.
