About Us

Office of Youth Protection and Compliance (OYPC)

The Office of Youth Protection and Compliance (OYPC) serves as a central resource at UW–Madison. We support youth programs by

  • sharing expertise on youth protection policies and best practices;
  • establishing and enforcing specific processes for programs to meet youth protection standards;
  • coaching staff to work toward implementing best practices for youth programs;
  • providing youth protection training and professional development for program staff, administrators, and other adult leaders of youth programs.

OYPC also collaborates with members of the UW–Madison Precollege Council and administrative departments across campus to develop processes and procedures that meet requirements and achieve compliance with youth protection standards.
