Our Mission: To provide year-round positive, fun and safe places for all youth, helping them to build self-esteem and develop skills necessary to make right choices, becoming responsible and productive citizens.
As has been reported in the media, we were notified by the Grants Pass Police Department of Public Safety that they arrested former Grants Pass employee James Curry on alleged charges of inappropriate conduct and sending inappropriate electronic communications to a 16-year-old minor. We are taking this allegation very seriously and are working with the Police Department as they move forward with their investigation. At this time, we know only what was shared in the police report and have no additional information regarding these allegations.
Since 1970, the Boys & Girls Clubs of the Rogue Valley has been dedicated to providing a safe and positive place of all youth. It is important for you to know that the safety of our Club Members and families is our primary concern. We have terminated James Curry from all duties and he is prohibited from access to our organization and its operations. We believe it is important for you to know that our staff members and volunteers have full criminal background checks. Additionally, staff working with youth sign a Code of Conduct and are prohibited from ever being alone with youth.
In addition to local law enforcement, we have notified the responsible state and national agencies concerning these developments.
If you have any information that might help with the investigation, please contact Diann Gilbertson at 541-479-5258 as soon as possible.
Our support goes out to those involved and their families. Counselors will be available at our Grants Pass Club.
