Unless and until my consent is revoked, I hereby authorize My Teen to participate in any and all online and in-person YAWP events and classes hosted by GrubStreet Inc. (“GrubStreet”) for which My Teen registers (“YAWP Programs”). I understand and agree that I am responsible for My Teen’s actions, that My Teen is expected to abide by all GrubStreet rules and policies, and that failure to do so may result in My Teen’s dismissal from YAWP Programs.
Program Content. I understand that YAWP Programs include a wide range of creative content that address subjects including race, religion, gender, sex, and sexual orientation. Some creative content may be considered offensive, indecent, crude, or otherwise objectionable.

In-Person Programs (Health and Safety Precautions). YAWP Programs may be offered in-person depending on guidance and directives issued by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the Massachusetts Department of Health, and other federal and state agencies. When YAWP Programs are offered in person, I agree to keep My Teen home whenever My Teen (or a family member in My Teen’s household) is feeling sick, has a cough or fever, or exhibits any other symptoms of illness, including, without limitation, COVID-19.
In-Person Programs (Excursions and Unsupervised Breaks). When YAWP Programs are offered in person, I hereby authorize My Teen to participate in supervised excursions in and around the Boston area. These excursions may include, among other destinations, the Boston Public Garden, Boston Common, Boston Public Library, and Copley Square areas. I also authorize My Teen to leave GrubStreet’s physical facilities for unsupervised breaks including lunch breaks.

I understand that there are risks associated with My Teen’s participation in YAWP Programs including, without limitation, (a) the risk of viruses, malfunctions, or harmful components that could damage or allow unauthorized access to computers, computer networks, or mobile devices; (b) the risk of exposure to COVID-19 or other infectious diseases; and (c) the risk of physical injury due to activity-related accidents, physical injury due to transportation-related accidents, serious illness, or even death. By typing my full name in the signature box below, I hereby agree to assume all such risks, whether known or unknown to me at this time. In consideration of My Teen being given the opportunity to participate in and benefit from YAWP Programs, I hereby agree on behalf of myself and My Teen to release and hold harmless GrubStreet, its officers, directors, board members, faculty, employees, agents, representatives, and each of their successors and assigns (“GrubStreet Entities”) from any and all claims, loses, expenses, costs, or liabilities of any nature that may result from or in connection with My Teen’s participation in the YAWP Program. I further agree to indemnify, defend, and hold harmless GrubStreet and all GrubStreet Entities from and against any and all claims, losses, expenses, costs, or liabilities of any nature that a third party may have against GrubStreet and/or GrubStreet entities that are based on, arise out of, or involve My Teen’s participation in YAWP Programs.

I understand and agree that if I revoke consent, my revocation request will be not become effective until I receive a reply email from GrubStreet confirming receipt of my revocation request. I UNDERSTAND AND AGREE THAT REVOCATION OF MY CONSENT DOES NOT REVOKE THE ABOVE RELEASE AND INDEMNIFICATION WITH RESPECT TO MY TEEN’S PARTICIPATION IN ANY YAWP PROGRAMS PRIOR TO THE EFFECTIVE DATE OF REVOCATION.
