Tech Journey programs and activities are intended for youth ages nine and above with specific ages listed in the program’s description. A parent or legal guardian must register each student for each activity following the designated registration process. A parent or guardian may be required to remain on-site during in-person activities with any child under age 13. For virtual activities, we strongly recommend a parent or guardian be present with younger, less experienced students to provide guidance on navigating multiple windows while working in virtual webinar/meeting applications.
Use of Tech Journey computer systems may be granted to students attending an activity. Tech Journey will not create personally-identifiable accounts for students under the age of 13 within its computer systems or any online resources required by the activity. Additional details about access and use of computer systems and information for participants can be found in our Computer Use Policy.
CODE OF CONDUCT
If unacceptable or negative behavior occurs at an activity, staff and volunteers will attempt to redirect the participant. Positive verbal communication along with time given to correct the behavior, shall accompany the redirection. On occasions when redirection is unsuccessful in resolving negative behavior, the student’s parent/guardian will be notified and the student will be removed from the activity or program for an appropriate time to be determined by staff.
Unacceptable or negative behavior is defined as an individual who: uses physical force against others, misuses equipment or associated property, is unable to maintain control, uses inappropriate language, or behaves in a harassing or disrespectful manner to other youth or adults.
Additional details prohibiting harassment and violence as well as child protection can be found in our Safety Policy.
