About Youth Protection

Office of Youth Protection and Compliance

Many departments on campus sponsor programs involving minors, such as academic programs, internships, school visits and summer camps. Rochester Insitute of Technology and the greater community benefit from these activities, which introduce young people to the exciting academic and recreational resources available. RIT is committed to the safety and well-being of minors engaged in these activities and programs held on campus and in RIT-sponsored events in the community. As such, all programs must comply with C26.0 Protection of Minors on Campus Policy.

The Office of Youth Protection and Compliance provides guidance on best practices, training and resources that allow program directors to provide fun and stimulating educational experiences for youth in a safe and supportive environment. This also provides parents, guardians and educators an assurance that we will provide a quality learning opportunity for their children and students.
