The ACCED-I Annual Conference in Orlando, FL March 26 - 29, 2017 will feature one institute - Beyond Camps: A Comprehensive Look at Leading and Emerging Practices for the Protection of Minors on Campus, presented by: Omar Andujar, CCEP, Director of Youth Conference Services, University of Connecticut.

Whether by accident or design, many colleges and universities offer an array of opportunities for minors to visit campus. While many recognize the value of creating such opportunities for minors, highly publicized incidents of child abuse and sexual assault allegations at higher education institutions have underscored the need to establish comprehensive youth protection efforts. This session will help you learn how the presence of minors on campus goes “beyond camps” and will provide insights on developing, implementing and managing your campus youth protection program. 

Learning Objectives:
- Gain an understanding of the unique challenges higher education institutions face when managing risks associated with having minors on campus
- Take a deep dive into today’s leading and emerging campus youth protection strategies
- Learn practical steps you can take to centrally track the various ways minors engage on campus and how to use data to further enhance campus youth protection efforts
- Explore strategies for monitoring and evaluating the adoption and effectiveness of practices aimed at protecting minors on campus
- Become familiar with helpful resources and gain insights on how to engage key partners and facilitators of campus youth activities

The Institute will take place Monday, March 27 at 1:45 p.m. – 5:00 p.m. There is an additional fee of $25.  Register soon as 25 is the maximum number of participants. Learn more about the 37th Annual Conference and register at http://www.acced-i.org/page/37thAnnualConference.
