Youth Activities & Programs

Four smiling children pose for a picture.


The Office of Institutional Equity oversees the Youth Activities & Programs policy, which promotes the safety and welfare of youth/minors entrusted to the university’s care.

This policy outlines what is required of university community members who work in activities and programs with youth participants and informs individuals of their reporting obligations in instances of known or suspected child abuse or neglect.

This webpage contains helpful information related to the Youth Activities & Programs policy, including registering a campus activity or program with youth, policy training and additional policy resources. Contact the Director of Youth Protection for more information related to youth protection at Ohio State.
