The Office of Precollege & Youth Program Compliance (OPYPC) is a central resource to all University of Wisconsin–Madison departments that offer youth programming. Individual departments develop high-quality programs for youth, and OPYPC provides support by:
- Sharing expertise on youth protection policies and best practices
- Enforcing a specific process for programs to meet youth protection standards
- Auditing programs as they occur to verify adherence to youth protection standards
- Securing scholarship and grant opportunities for precollege programs across campus to make them accessible to more youth
In addition to supporting UW–Madison precollege programs, OPYPC provides youth protection training and professional development for program staff, administrators, and other adult leaders of youth programs. Browse course offerings.
