The Five Commitments of Heroic Youth
Participation in Youth Leadership and Volunteering is dependent upon your follow-through to the following Five Commitments at all Heroic Youth events.#1 - Code of Conduct
I commit to treat myself, others, and property with respect. I obey Youth Protection rules by following the “rule of three” and “line of sight” guidelines. I speak with respectful language. I do not engage in public displays of affection other than friendly hugs. I take care of the costumes, props, equipment, and facilities I use. I understand that I can be asked to leave if I do not follow these guidelines.#2 - Dress and Grooming
I commit to dress modestly, allowing my actions and character to be the main focus. These guidelines include:
- Shorts or skirts must be modest in length
- Tops have sleeves
- Modest necklines
- Shirts cover midriff
- No images on clothing that are graphic, degrading, or profane.
- Close-toed shoes
- Hair in naturally occurring colors (blond, brunette, auburn, etc. not blue, purple, green, etc.)
- For main events - male youth to be clean-shaven and tidy haircuts, and all appropriate costumes as described for your individual role.
I understand that I can be asked to leave if I do not follow these guidelines.#3 - Communication
I commit to being responsible for knowing what is happening and required for my role. I therefore will check my Heroic Youth communications regularly and respond as required. I understand that communication is vital in fulfilling my role.#4 - Everyday Warrior Journey (Youth)
I commit to engage in EWJ to the best of my ability by journaling, reporting weekly, reading the EWJ emails, sharing victories, and turning in my Journey Report. I don't have to be perfect at any of these, but I know that EWJ is a vital and integral part of my Heroic Youth experience.#5 - Trainings and Engagement
I commit to attending my house meetings (Youth) and trainings and to being actively engaged in my role throughout all events. I will apply the Heroes Creed to my participation to be the best I can be. I understand that I can be asked to leave if I do not follow these guidelines.
