Youth Conference Rules and Code of Ethics (Must be read and signed by all Adult Sponsors and Older Youth in Leadership Roles)Rules: All rules apply equally to youth and adults. All rules were formed by the DYSC for liability reasons andconferee safety. Enforcement of the conference rules is the responsibility of EVERY conferee with overallsupervision by the DYSC officers. Adults in general are not expected to be the primary rule enforcers, but areexpected to be full conference participants. Adults and youth leaders are expected to serve as good role modelsand to have a signed code of ethics when they check in at conferences. At least 1 adult per 10 youth from each church must be present (1-7Attendees will remain on site at all times for Jr. High events)Being outside designated areas at any time is Illegal use of alcoholic beverages, illegal drugs and weapons areprohibited prohibitedNO SEX! Everyone must attend all mandatory planned activitiesCaffeine pills and other unnecessary drugs (Sleeping area rules would go here, but we don’t intend onare not allowed sleeping!)Smoking is not condoned during the Sexual behavior which detracts from the conference communityconference for youth or adults will not be toleratedAdhere to site rules Cars are off limits during the con except for approved con businessIn the event of a rules infraction, the Conference Rules Committee will be convened to determine theconsequences of the rule infraction. Code of Ethics for Adults, Older Youth and Youth in Leadership Roles with Youth Based on the Code of Ethics for Adults, Older Youth, and Youth who are in leadership roles with Children and Youth, adopted by the Unitarian Universalist Association in 1986.Adults, older youth, and youth who are in leadership roles are in a position of stewardship and play a key role infostering the spiritual development of both individuals and the community. It is therefore especially importantthat those in leadership positions be well qualified to provide the special nurturing, care and support that willenable youth to develop a positive sense of self and a spirit of independence and responsibility. The relationshipbetween young people and their leaders must be one of mutual respect if the positive potential of theirrelationship is to be realized. There are no more important areas of growth than those of self-worth and thedevelopment of a healthy identity as a sexual being. Adults play a key role in assisting youth in these areas ofgrowth. Wisdom dictates that youth and adults suffer damaging effects when leaders become sexually involvedwith young persons in their care; leaders will therefore refrain from engaging in sexual, seductive or eroticbehavior with youth. Neither shall they sexually harass youth nor engage in behavior with youth that constitutesverbal, emotional or physical abuse. I, _______________________________________, as a youth leader, an olderyouth (over 18) or an adult, recognize my position of power and have read and understand the above statementsof position, expectations and actions and agree to follow the Code of Ethics.**Signature: __________________________________________________Date:___________
