Youth Protection Program provides guidance to those involved in the planning and implementation of programs for youth sponsored by the University of North Texas or conducted on/off campus.

University departments wishing to host youth programs can work with the assistance of our department or can choose to make their own arrangements for meetings and recreational space, auxiliary services, transportation, social events, and all support services needed for a successful program by contacting the appropriate UNT entity. 

Any third party (not directly affiliated with UNT) wishing to use University facilities to conduct a program for youth must work through Scheduling Services and secure a Facilities Use Agreement. These programs must adhere to University procedures, guidelines, and policies while a guest at the University of North Texas.
