Adult: Youth Ratios
The only adults who meet the requirement for this ratio are those adults approved under this policy. See requirements for “Adult Staff and Volunteers Leaders”. Other adults such as guest presenters do not count towards ratio. See section on “Age Range for Youth” for definition of youth.
1 adult: 7 youth for high school youth, 1 adult: 5 youth for junior high youth events. Some events may be deemed to require a higher number of adults.
In addition to meeting the adult:youth ratios, there must always be at least two adults present for any event.
Two adults who are in a committed partnership or marriage cannot satisfy the requirement of having at least two adults present around youth.
