The Youth Programs office provides support in the areas of Program Development and Program Standards and focuses on the following key areas:

DEVELOPMENT The Youth Programs office equips program directors with a vessel for developing and/or enhancing youth programs operated by or affiliated with the University. The Youth Programs office assists program directors with determining program emphasis, finding and training qualified staff, and planning program schedules and budgets.

APPROVAL All FAU-affiliated programs are required to seek approval by the Youth Programs office prior to beginning beginning program operations. The application process will familiarize program directors with current standards and also offer counseling and training to ensure standards are met and maintained.

STANDARDS The Youth Programs office provides guidance on compliance requirements for FAU-operated or affiliated programs. We also deliver educational resources on youth protection strategies, applicable policies and laws, and assist you with navigating requirements for reporting and responding to incidents.
