Multigenerational Events with Youth-Focused Programming
Parents/Guardians are primarily responsible for supervising youth. UUA Youth Safety Policies, including rules related to sexual behavior, supersede parental consent for underage, romantic partners to co-house. Programs are strongly encouraged to set expectations with parents/guardians around adult substance use.
Parental and/or guardian responsibilities may be delegated to another adult, to serve as an onsite chaperone or sponsor, but this requires a legal and notarized temporary guardianship form. (Sample in Appendix)
Leaders of multigenerational events are responsible for setting ratios for sponsors and youth. Ratios shall be equal to or more stringent than other youth events. In general, more adults are needed to supervise youth due to the complexity of multigenerational settings.
Multigenerational Housing in Dormitories
Youth housing will be determined by parents and/or guardians including the option to be housed with a particular roommate, an assigned roommate of the same sex, a sibling, or the parents.
Youth will not be housed with a romantic partner.
Parents and/or guardians will be housed in the same building as their youth and, as available, may be housed on the same floor or in the same room as their youth.
Parents and/or guardians will be fully informed about when supervised youth programming is available and are responsible for supervising their youth at all other times.
Parents and/or guardians are responsible for supervising their youth overnight.
