JUNTOS Code of Conduct

This Code of Conduct describes behaviors that are inconsistent with the essential values of the JUNTOS community. It is our expectation that every participant and member of the community is free from behavior which might reasonably be said to interfere with their access to and enjoyment of JUNTOS programs, activities and opportunities, including but not limited to:

Cultural norms may differ in the countries to which JUNTOS travels, including those which permit adults under the age of 21 to consume alcohol in moderation at meals and social gatherings. If you are a JUNTOSYouth participant, you agree to refrain from the consumption of alcohol or drugs, regardless of local laws. If you are participating in JUNTOSAbroad, JUNTOSLocal, or JUNTOSAmbassador, you recognize yourself as an ambassador for JUNTOS and are nevertheless expected to refrain from any consumption of alcohol that might impair your judgment or behavior.
