APS 10.13 applies to all programs, activities, and research operated or sponsored by the University of Washington that are created for, or directed at, a youth audience.
Activities may take place on campus, off campus or virtually/online.
The policy applies to UW led programs regardless of whether parents, guardians, or other caregivers, e.g., teachers or chaperones are also involved.
Third party-led activities using UW facilities are also required to meet the standards set in this policy.
