Protection of Minors

Georgetown University has established a Protection of Minors Policy to protect those under 18 years of age who participate in programs and activities associated with the University and to provide guidance to University students, faculty and staff who are involved with such programs and activities. Additional information about the policy may be found at protectionofminors.georgetown.edu.

CSJ is committed to educating students about their obligation to report known or suspected child abuse or neglect that they may encounter while working in CSJ programs. The introductory training for CSJ programs includes information about campus and online resources for reporting, as well as University and District of Columbia requirements. Situations that may require reporting are difficult, and CSJ staff members are available as resources to provide guidance and support to students who believe they have encountered a situation that requires reporting.

If at any point a student has questions about his or her obligations or what to do in a particular situation, the student should contact their Program Director and/or the CSJ Associate Director, Ray Shiu. More information about CSJ’s reporting protocol can be found here. Questions about CSJ’s compliance with the Protection of Minors policy can be directed to CSJ’s Associate Director, Ray Shiu.

Students participating in CSJ-sponsored or –affiliated programs that work with minors must attend a Protection of Minors training on one of the dates below.  If you are unable to attend any of the following trainings, please contact CSJ’s Graduate Assistant for Training and Compliance, Matt Ehlenbach as soon as possible. A good faith effort will be made to accommodate your scheduling requirements.

Please note that Protection of Minors trainings are customized by approximate age group (as noted below). You are free to attend any training, but please be aware that each will have a particular focus.
