For Youth Program Administrators

In order to keep our promise of offering excellent youth activities and programs at ISU, this website contains information and resources to help Program Leaders plan and conduct activities, programs and camps for youth in a safe and effective manner.

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. 

Over the past three years, changes have been made to procedures and forms to improve efficiencies when complying with the policies for Youth Activities, Pre-Collegiate Programs and Camps (YAP); Children in the Workplace; and Volunteers.  These training sessions will be helpful for departmental/unit youth program leaders, camp directors and student organization officers responsible for planning and supervising youth programs and for administrative assistants who may provide support for youth programs. 

Training sessions will be conducted on the following dates and times during Fall semester 2015:

Tuesday, September 1, 10:00 a.m. – 12:00 Noon at the Extension 4-H Youth Building, Conference Room 1020

Wednesday, October 14, 10:00 a.m. – 12:00 Noon at the Administrative Service Building, Conference Room 1155.
