I, as the parent or legal guardian of the named student ('child'), do hereby grant permission for my child's participation in any and all activities prepared or facilitated by the Future Leaders Programme (the 'Programme'). In exchange for the acceptance of said child's candidacy by the Programme, I assume all risk and hazards incidental to the conduct of the activities, and release, absolve and hold harmless the Programme and all its respective officers, agents, and representatives from any and all liability for injuries to said child arising out of traveling to, participating in, or returning from selected Programme sessions and activities. I understand that in the course of studying issues such as gang violence, poverty, etc. and as part of the Programme, my child will undertake field trips which may include physical activity or the entering of environments to which they may or may not be normally accustomed. I also understand that the challenges presented by the Covid-19 pandemic may present a unique risk to my child's safety when participating in group or in-person experiences with persons outside of their household, and have also accepted and included this in absolving the Programme of these risks as stated above. Every reasonable precaution will be taken to ensure my child's safety to the best of the ability of every staff member of the Programme.
I am fully aware, consent to, and accept these risks and voluntarily agree to allow my child's participation in all activities facilitated by the Programme.
