Youth Program Registration is Live!


Oregon State University is committed to offering a physically, psychologically and emotionally safe environment for all youth. To support that mission, the Office of Youth Safety & Compliance is responsible for overseeing youth policies and guidelines and ensuring accurate accounting of the youth participating in OSU programs. Safety processes and compliance structures focus on protection of minors who are not enrolled in OSU classes, but who participate in OSU youth programs on and off campus. 


Oregon State University employees and volunteers who work with individuals younger than 18 must adhere to the Protection of Minors Policy and associated Policy Resource Guide. This guide outlines policy requirements and best practices to help keep youth, faculty and staff safe. Resources are updated regularly, so check back often.
