3. Any member of the community is empowered and encouraged to voice their opinions, objections, or concerns at any time.

Smoking Policy:
Due to the unhealthy and addictive nature of smoking, there is a non-smoking policy for all events. Violation of this policy will result in the following action (per event):

1st offense: Confiscation of cigarettes, tobacco, lighters, etc. Information on smoking cessation and any available aid will be given in assisting you in making it through the weekend.

2nd offense: A serious meeting with your advisor and notification of this violation to your parents by phone. Also you will make an apology to the community at large.

Youth Signature:____________________________________Date:___________

Adult Initals:_________

All adults must sign the following document. Any youth in a leadership position - that is, the deans, the planning committee, and touch group leaders - must also sign. Youth who are not in leadership positions need not sign this form.

Code of Ethics for Adults and Youth in Leadership Positions

Adults, members of Youth Adult Committee, and anyone else 18 years old or over or in a leadership position.

Adults and youth who are in leadership positions, either due to age or office, are in a position of stewardship and play a key role in fostering spiritual development of both individuals and the community. It is therefore especially important that those in leadership positions be well qualified to provide the special care and support that will enable youth to develop a positive sense of self and a spirit of independence and responsibility.

The relationship between young people and their leaders must be one of mutual respect if the positive potential is to be realized.

Given that cooperation and youth empowerment are an integral part of YRUU, those in leadership positions shall support and recognize youth’s right to empower themselves.

There are no more important areas of growth than those of self-worth and the development of a healthful identity as a sexual being.

Leaders play a key role in assisting youth in these areas of growth.

Those in leadership positions who abuse their roles as leaders damage the community.

Experience dictates that all those involved suffer damaging effects when leaders become sexually involved with those they are leading.

Leaders shall refrain from engaging in sexual, seductive, or erotic behavior with youth and adults in the community.

Neither shall they sexually harass or engage in behavior with youth and adults which constitutes verbal, emotional, or physical abuse.

Leaders need to be aware of the strong influence they have in the community. It is expected that their influence will be used positively.

In case of violations, appropriate actions will be taken.

As an adult I will abide by this code of ethics.
