CODE OF ETHICS
A code of ethics is an agreement among participants in a program to commit to a standard of excellence. It is a tool to communicate expectations to participants and protest staff and programs from all forms of negative recourse. The YLC Pledge is not a Code of Ethics as such, but it does provide the foundations of YLC members’ or leaders’ standards of excellence for behavior..
The YLC Pledge speaks to the following ideals:
1. The philosophy of YLC engaged in learning and doing for the betterment of others;
2. The individual’s right to dignity, self development, and self direction;
3. Supervision and support from paid staff and volunteer adult leaders while involved in the program;
4. Development of a positive role model image which projects a team approach rather than personal gain; and
5. Personal and group commitment to health and safety.
CODE OF CONDUCT
While the Code of Ethics offers a set of guidelines for YLC to live by, the Code of Conduct is a concrete set of expectations that determine behavior at club meetings and various outings. This code should be developed jointly by members and leaders and should address positive behavioral expectations.
