illegal substances and stealing?
No narcotics or alcoholic beverages are to be brought to any USY event. Anyone possessing or using any drugs or alcohol, including prescription medications not prescribed for their own use, or anyone who has been found stealing, will be immediately sent home at their parents’ expense and their rabbi notified.
In addition, the individual will be prohibited from participating in any International USY programs and activities for a period of one year following the offense.
The USYer’s region reserves the right to impose additional sanctions in connection with this or any other improper behavior as it sees fit. IC code is very strict and there are no second chances.
Smoking is strictly prohibited at all times during IC both in the hotel and outside of the hotel. This policy includes e-cigarettes.
USY has a zero-tolerance policy regarding bullying at all local, regional, and international programs, including IC. This includes any form of hazing, harassment or sexual misconduct.
We also ask that teens use care and common courtesy when posting on social media sites. Posts will be subject to the zero-tolerance policy, as stated above.
Upon registering for IC, all teens and parents sign a Code of Conduct agreement. This indicates full understanding of USY’s behavioral expectations.
If a teen chooses to act outside of the Code of Conduct, the incident will be addressed by appropriate staff members.
Should it be determined that the teen needs to be dismissed, travel arrangements home will be made immediately, at the family’s expense and without a refund.
