The Ruritan Youth Protection Policy is intended to protect both youths, and adults, as they participate in Ruritan Club functions. It is mostly a “common sense” approach that discourages adult members from being alone with a non-related youth. There is no “mandatory” ratio of adults to youths.
Following are pages taken from the training program used to train officers of local Ruritan Clubs. The included pages explain the policy quite well. The included pages are numbered from 36 through 50. Pages 1 through 35, and page 51 are not included pages, as they are not part of the Youth Protection Policy.
