Youth Program Leader Awareness Training

The Offices of Risk Management, Extension and Outreach, and Conference Planning and Management will collectively offer training to provide youth program leaders, administrators and student organization officers with information regarding youth related policies, procedures and forms for successfully conducting youth programs at ISU. 

It is important for youth program leaders, camp directors, student organization officers, and others responsible for planning and supervising youth programs to understand applicable ISU resources and policies [i.e. Youth Activities, Pre-Collegiate Programs and Camps (YAP); Children in the Workplace; and Volunteers]. 

These training sessions will be helpful for anyone responsible for planning and supervising youth programs and for those who provide administrative support for youth programs.
