The policy relates to all minors (below 18 years of age) around a HFH construction site and/or participating on International Volunteer Teams. The primary issues here are the safety of these minors, the potential ramifications if something were to happen to them, and the general safety of the construction site. Underage volunteers should be fully compliant with the international and alternative off-site activities should be suggested instead. Off-site activities could also be organized for them; as long as they do not happen when regular construction is taking place and they are limited to particular tasks in compliance with the policy.  Have Standard Minor Waivers signed by Parent or Guardian  In the event of International Boarding Schools, the minor should be covered under the Memorandum of Understanding between HFHI and school, using the Passive Minor Waiver  Minors must adhere to the AGE-APPROPRIATE HFH activities while participating on 5.
