Youth Protection Requirements provisions listed to the left of the screen apply to all University of Florida-affiliated youth programs, including but not limited to, workshops, sports camps, academic camps, conferences, pre-enrollment visits, and similar activities. The provisions include:
- Online Interactions
- Background Checks
- Youth Protection Training
- Supervision of Minors
- Parent/Guardian Consent - Template
All University of Florida-affiliated youth programs must demonstrate compliance with any mandatory standards applicable to their specific programs as well as compliance with the minimum compliance standards for youth programs prior to commencing program operations. Programs currently underway should come into compliance with these provisions as soon as possible.
Youth programming/events that will take place during the summer is largely considered summer camp. It is important for summer camps to comply with the provisions set forth by the university and Department of Children and Families. The summer camp checklist should serve as a resource for all activities that are hosted for minors.
