As part of Youth Frontiers’ emphasis on participant safety, communications involving minor participants will be appropriate, productive and transparent. Effective communication concerning opportunities and events is critical. The growing use and relevancy of mobile devices, social media, texting and emailing is helpful to connect with our youth-based community. We want to be doing it responsibly. YF may use email and text messaging to communicate. All email and text message content between a YF staff member and youth participants will be non-personal in nature and be for the purpose of communicating information about our alumni program.
