In addition to regular reporting procedures within a program or department, as well as mandatory reporting procedures, incidents involving minors should also be reported to the Youth Protection Oversight Committee. For details on what incidents to report visit Incident Reporting.
Please use the form below to report incidents involving minors to the Youth Protection Oversight Committee. If you have questions regarding this form please contact the committee at firstname.lastname@example.org.
VERY IMPORTANT: Program administrators should follow the established department guidelines for reporting the incident to department personnel which is separate from the process noted above. Reporting to the Youth Protection Oversight Committee does not replace the protocols in place within your program or department or end the process of reporting the incident.
