Non-UF Youth Activity (Third-party Users)

A Non-UF Youth Activity is an event designed for minors occurring on University property which is not hosted, operated, conducted, sponsored, or organized by the University, a DSO, or an Affiliate Entity. In general, such activities are conducted by third parties, including General Registered Student Organizations. Third-party users are responsible for facilitating all background checks required through the appropriate channels. Specifically for summer camps hosted on University property, the background screenings must be facilitated through the Department of Children and Families Clearinghouse. The Office of Human Resources will not facilitate screening requests on the behalf of third-party users. Non-UF Youth Activities do not register events in the Youth Compliance database.
