The information on this Form is accurate, complete, and all-inclusive, to the best of my knowledge.

Youth Code of Conduct

The Jewish Youth Network is an extension not only of our congregation and community but part of an international Jewish youth organization.  There are certain guidelines, therefore, that all members must follow.  These rules are for the safety of our members and the support of our programs.  Upon joining, each participant must sign a form stating their understanding of the policies.  Non-compliance may result in removal from any program or event whether it be chapter or regional and may jeopardize future attendance at programs and events.  Included in the rules are the following:


No smoking, drugs, or alcohol are allowed at any event.


No physically destructive behavior will be tolerated at any event, including that which is harmful to material or injurious to others.


No theft of any kind will be tolerated.


Use of negative, tasteless or hurtful language will not be tolerated.  In their language and behavior, members will treat others (including chaperones, staff and other members) with respect.


Members will be respectful of the tenets of Conservative Judaism.  These include, but are not limited to, the laws of Kashrut and Shabbat, when applicable, as well as not conducting Youth Department business including but not limited to planning, meetings, etc. on Shabbat or Chag.


Situations where members are non-compliant with these policies will be handled as follows:


1st Offense: Speak with the Youth Director and notify parents following the incident.


2nd Offense: Parent/guardian contacted for immediate pick-up.


3rd Offense: Member will not be permitted to return without a customized behavior contract signed by parents/guardians, member, advisor, and Youth Director.


*If non-compliant behaviors continue, member will not be permitted to participate in Youth Department and USY regional events for the remainder of the year.


*If offense is severe, whether 1st offense or repeat offense, the situation may be handled differently than the order listed above.
