If there is a program during the day I am attending am I obligated to go?

 No, youth are not obligated to go to any programming. The only time youth are required to go to something are house meetings. House meetings are discussions about the culture of the house and youth attending. Many times, these meetings are establishing new ground rules or talking about issues that staff have noticed from many of the youth. Examples of house meeting topics we've had in the past were discussions around racism and microaggressions, discussions around age and boundaries between ages, discussions around consent rules within the house, Q&A sessions about new rules, questions and suggestions regarding the dress expectations, as well as brainstorming sessions for various decisions being made in the house. If a youth is in attendance when the house meeting is held, we ask that they be there as house meetings directly affect every youth and we love to hear your input and thoughtful dialogue!
