Protecting Minors

The University of Idaho offers many programs for minors. Youth-serving programs provide participants with many opportunities, but have unique challenges. APM 05.12, Protection of Minors, provides both participants and employees with “best practices” to maximize opportunity and minimize loss. Youth-serving programs are responsible for implementing APM 05.12.

Protection of Minors Handbook

The Protection of Minors policy APM 05.12 states minimum requirements to help ensure that the university meets its legal and ethical obligations to protect minors participating in university programs and visiting the university’s campuses. These requirements are also applicable to contractors, facilities use agreements and non-UI events.

The University of Idaho Protection of Minors handbook provides additional information, guidelines, forms and details for the implementation of APM 05.12, Protection of Minors. For convenience, the handbook follows the same outline / numbering as APM 05.12, Protection of Minors.

All UI programs must adhere to screening and selection criteria required by UI per procedures on file at UI Risk. These steps must be completed before an applicant is released to work with minors in a paid or unpaid position. Screening and selection applies to Authorized Adults and Supervised Adults, see Protection of Minors handbook.

Training must be completed prior to work with minors, and every three (3) years, or upon change in position. Programs may implement training in addition to the minimum required training.

4-H Authorized Adults and Supervised Adults are required to take training through University of Idaho 4-H program. Consult with 4-H program.

Authorized Adults

Authorized Adults are individuals who may have direct and unsupervised contact with a minor. Authorized Adults are individuals (whether full-time, part-time, temporary, paid, or unpaid), who in their official capacity interact with, supervise, chaperone, act as a caregiver for, or oversee and have responsibility for minors in UI programs. Authorized Adults include but are not limited to UI faculty, staff, other employees, volunteers, graduate and undergraduate students, and interns. Authorized Adult status does not apply to UI individuals at public events where there is a reasonable expectation of parental supervision.
