Youth Program Participation Agreement

Program staff must have a virtual online student participation agreement and a parental permission agreement before youth can participate in an online or virtual youth program. Parents and participants can sign the agreement electronically, but the normal document retention requirements apply. Departments/units must register signed copies up to the age of 20. The 406th Judicial District Drug Court Program is an anti-drug intervention program. The program was designed to provide an early opportunity to change negative behaviours through forensic monitoring, urine testing, case management, community information and drug abuse references information and treatment. It is also a low-cost alternative to traditional criminal treatment. The test for participation in the program was developed cooperatively under the leadership of 406 District Judge Oscar J. Hale Jr. of the Crown Prosecution Service, the Crown and the Department of Community Control.

This Home Energy Efficiency Assistance Program Participation Agreement (“Agreement”) is an offer from the Georgia Power Company (“Georgia Power”) to allow you (“you” or “participants”) to participate in Georgia Power`s Home Energy Efficiency Assistance Program (“Program”),” as described in this agreement and in accordance with the terms and conditions of this agreement and all program terms. By executing this agreement, you accept this offer and agree to respect and abide by the terms of this Contract and the Program as a condition of your participation in the program. The program is only available to clients of individuals 18 years of age or older who reside in the United States and meet certain income-entitled conditions. By executing this agreement, you declare and guarantee that you are the major in entering into a binding contract with Georgia Power and that you are meeting all the eligibility requirements for the program. Procedures and requirements for reporting child abuse, other offences and security breaches apply to all online or virtual programs. Online or virtual youth programs are subject to the same substantive control requirements as in-person youth programs. This form can be customized for use with preteen or teens in your program. You can make the language less formal or the vocabulary less demanding, depending on the development phase of the young people in your programs. You can also add or subtract components from the code.

You may find that you get more “Buy in” if participants are part of the development process. If you use such a “contract,” you must be prepared to impose the consequences if the code is broken or if the “contract” has no meaning for the participants. The inclusion of youth and staff in a code reinforces the idea that rules are part of the life that young people and adults must follow.
