Create Best Practices in Youth Policy Coordination & Streamlined Ways to Properly Screen & Train Students
Do you have interaction protocols in place for your student staff who are in contact with minors? Do your student staff such as athletic assistants, camp counselors, life guards, daycare staff, visit hosts and conference leaders have clear instructions and guidelines on issues related to minors?
There are very real concerns related to the organization of groups, where and how one-on-one interactions take place, physical touch and the use of language that must be outlined clearly to student staff members.
Join us on June 1, 2023 and in 90 minutes you and your staff will explore ways to reduce your risk of liability and to protect your institution from unnecessary lawsuits involving interactions between adults and minors.
Revisit your policies, including training efforts, to help ensure that you are meeting your moral and legal responsibilities to minors, that you are not placing your staff in compromising positions, and that you are keeping your institution safe from legal action.
At the conclusion of the webinar, you will be able to:
- Learn how to protect yourself and your institution from legal challenges regarding your student staff who work with minors – implement a robust youth policy coordination effort and ensure there is a system in place for approving these programs and training staff members accordingly, especially students.
- Identify leading practices for protecting children and youth – avoid costly litigation and negative publicity by developing clear protocols/policies that outline behavior and interaction expectations of your staff.
- Tap into resources both internal and external to the campus to assist with the training of your student staff – ensure they are compliant with campus, state and federal mandates to protect your institution and the minors they interact with.
- Understand changes to regulations and laws that have been implemented to protect minors visiting campus – minimize liability by incorporating an intensive screening and training process to set clear expectations for behavior for any student who is selected to interact with minors.
- Engage key stakeholders from around campus that host or sponsor youth/minors on campus and utilize student staff employees/volunteers – ensure all members of the campus community are implementing strategies to minimize risk and follow campus policies and procedures regarding reporting and managing incidents involving minors.
- Know when to, and when not to, intervene with outside groups hosting on-campus events to guarantee they uphold your expectations and policies – make sure your institution does not assume risk.
