CHAPERONE INFORMATION

This District Congress has the responsibility of ensuring the behavior of our messengers. Please remind your delegation of the purpose of Congress; to lift the name of JESUS and to represent HIM in a manner that will bring glory to HIS name, while representing themselves and their home church, all while enjoying the week’s experiences.

We ask that the chaperone(s) abide by the following guidelines for the week:

• All messengers are required to be in class and General Assemblies at the appropriate time, as outlined in the program booklet.

• Young people are expected to abide by an 11:00pm curfew. An adult chaperone must accompany young people out after this time. Chaperones are asked to please ensure that curfew is obeyed, and proper behavior is maintained in the hotels and rooms.

• Chaperones and churches are responsible for any damages caused by their group.

• Chaperones must accompany their youth to the pool; at all times and adhere to hotel/pool policies.

• At least one (1) chaperone is asked to accompany young people to Children & Youth Rally rehearsals and remain for its duration. Chaperones are asked to PLEASE assist the Pageant staff in keeping order and decorum.

• Chaperones are asked to please pay close attention to the dress code and ensure the proper dress for youth on a daily basis (see dress code below).

• Young people who are unable to abide by the rules and regulations of Congress and the hotel maybe asked to leave the session. Behavior and attitudes are key to a successful week!

Churches are asked to PLEASE make every effort to have their delegation attend Congress Call to Order, 10:00am. Monday July 22, at St. Johm M. B. Church, 900 N Seacrest Blvd Boynton Beach, FL; this sets the tone for the entire week.
