Consents and Waivers

Media Consent

Your child may participate in an event or activity at the YWCA Cambridge where photos/video or audio recordings of members may be taken for the purpose of representing the W on and in promotional materials for YWCA Cambridge. Parents with children or youth under the age of 18 must sign this consent form in order to protect your child's safety and privacy. I give consent to have photos/video/film/audio of my child taken and used in the promotional materials for YWCA Cambridge. My child's image may be published or used in newspapers, promotional videos, television commercials, program brochures, posters, social media etc. or otherwise displayed to the public or used for other educational/fundraising purposes, either in whole or in part by YWCA Cambridge.
Media Consent(*)
Please answer Yes or No

Waivers of Claims

I consent to allow my daughter to participate in activities at the W. I release any legal recourse against the W and all claims resulting from personal injury. In the case of emergency, I authorize the W to act on my behalf and transport my child to the nearest medical facility by ambulance or taxi at my cost. In the case where the activity will be traveling I am aware that the outings take place off-site from the original drop-off/pickup site of the W unless otherwise indicated.

Parents Guardian Agreements

This registration form is for information gathering purposes only: upon submission, you will be contacted by a staff of the W to confirm your registration. Please note that because of the demand of some programs and events, submission of this form DOES NOT guarantee a spot in a specific program. Thanks for your understanding!

Punctuality and Attendance

As a non-profit organization with limited financial resources, many of the free programs and workshops offered at the W require advanced registration and are limited in capacity. As such, I will give Girls' Centre Staff a minimum of 24 hours' notice should my child no longer be able to attend a workshop or program I have registered him/her for. I understand that punctual attendance to all programming is important for the emotional safety of both my child and for fellow group participants.

Pick-up Procedures

For the safety of my child, I agree to inform the W Staff if my child is to be picked up by someone who is not identified on her Registration Form. I also acknowledge that the person picking up my child must be visible to the W Staff and sign my child out of the Centre. Furthermore, I agree to arrive or arrange for pick-up of my child at the scheduled finish time for events, workshops and programs. Should this pick-up time need to be altered, I will give the W staff advanced notice. In the event that my child's transportation may be running late, I will call the W to alert staff. I understand that should no one arrive after one hour has gone by past the scheduled pick-up time, the W staff may call Family and Children's Services.
I accept the above terms(*)
Please answer Yes or No

Closed Group Expectations

A 'closed group' refers to any program offered at the W that runs for multiple weeks, in which new participants cannot join after the session has begun. Regular and punctual attendance is expected for all 'closed-group' programs offered out of the W. Since many programs encourage emotional sharing among participants, regular attendance ensures the W remains a safe space with supportive group dynamics; furthermore, many programs include lessons and activities that build off one another as the program progresses, in which case regular attendance ensures participants' skills and learning experiences are fully challenged and developed.
