Variety welcomes children to learn more about our organization and, where appropriate, find opportunities to serve their communities through programs and volunteer activities. However, we encourage this to be done only with their parent’s knowledge and supervision. For this reason we strongly encourage all parents and guardians to monitor the Internet use of their children.


We may update this privacy policy to reflect changes to our information practices. If we make any material changes, we will notify you by email (sent to the e-mail address most recently on file) or by means of a notice on this website prior to the change becoming effective. We encourage you to periodically review this page for the latest information on our privacy practices.
