With milder seasons in the not-too-distant future, the topic of integrating different youth roles into the workplace arises for public entities that are planning to provide services, programs and opportunities for their communities. We are often asked to review a wide range of member concepts, which have included proposed employment, volunteer, internship, school to work and other arrangements.  The risk of misclassifying and mishandling youth roles is high, leading to safety, coverage and legal issues. Regulatory scrutiny in this area has increased across sectors.  Sound planning, processes and practices, combined with an understanding of the pitfalls, are essential to implementing a successful youth workplace program and remaining within coverage.  Brief panel discussion followed by member Q&A.
