Check waivers for Launch Party

All young people <18 must have parent/guardian permission to participate in #NYCEDU programs. Here is our process for following this rule.

Add this wording to all registration forms

If you are under 18, have your parent/guardian register for you so they can sign the waiver/permission form that is part of the registration process."

Require all registrants to sign the General Waiver and Media Release form in the online registration process. All registrants, including adult allies, must sign this form.

Double-check after registrations that the waivers were signed correctly

Double-check at event sign-ins that young people <18 have parent/guardians who signed the waiver.

  • Ask if they are under 18, and if they are, ask if they had their parent/guardian register for them online or if they have a physical copy of the waiver
  • If they have a physical copy, take a picture of both sides and use the Add Document feature on Flipcause to upload their waiver
  • If they did not, have them call up their parent/guardian and register them
  • If they cannot get a parent/guardian to sign their waiver, they will unfortunately need to leave the event

Keep this #faq updated

@Carlee123 Here’s the spreadsheet to track waivers.

@Carlee123 I updated the directions with your new and improved email to people who need to fix their waivers! Check it out here.

@Carlee123 I made some edits to the How do we ensure all young people <18 have parent/guardian waivers? [TEMPLATE], most specifically needing to create a Youth Leader <18 registration type in the future! Are there any other things to edit?

@Carlee123 Checking in on this again.

Hey @Carlee123, I’m moving this to #done so we can take it off our task list.
