This policy is meant to serve as guidance for these valuable experiences. Please note, this policy may not encompass each and every encounter with a minor and should be flexible depending on the circumstances and with the approval of either a supervisor in charge of the area or facility or by the Risk Management Department in coordination with the Office of Legal Counsel.
