UW Office for Youth Programs Development and Support

Established in 2016, this office provides educational resources and consultation for UW programs and activities serving minors (age 0-17 years) on- and off-campus. This office is responsible for establishing guidelines and best practices to ensure the safety and well-being of minors engaged in our programs, activities and events. The Office for Youth Programs Development and Support also coordinates efforts across departments to increase alignment between youth-serving programs and the educational and strategic goals of the university.  More information is available on the Youth at UW website.
