CommonChord Project students are afforded fantastic opportunities to learn, create, grow, discover and build new friendships. With these opportunities and freedoms come responsibilities. Throughout the program, each student will be expected to conduct him/herself as a mature, law-abiding, cooperative and responsible individual. We insist on an atmosphere of respect, trust and consideration in the students’ dealings with fellow students and program leaders. We are creating together and this means we also are collectvely responsible to create a safe community.
While do not forsee any problems in our small group, there are the clear guidelines expected in the program. These are the expectations:
Participation: CommonChord students are required to attend all group sessions.
Respect: Students are expected to respect the individual rights of all members of the CommonChord community and treat each other with courtesy.
We are guests Newport Street Retreat. We ask that students respect the space and keep it well-kept during their stay and clean up after themselves.
Alcohol/Drugs: CommonChord Project has a zero-tolerance policy for involvement with alcohol or illegal drugs. We will have sole and complete discretion in identifying and determining involvement in incidents relating to drugs and alcohol.
Personal Safety: Students may not leave defined CCP areas without a staff member.
Interpersonal Relationships: CCP respects and supports the development of friendships amongst students. Students are advised, however, that
appropriate behavior and conduct is expected at all times.
Internet Use: Students are responsible for appropriate behavior on host networks. There will be periods of time during the group sessions when we ask that cellphones are put away and need this to be respected.
Housing: We are staying at the Newport Street Retreat. Students are expected to respect the privacy of their peers and are not allowed to visit in areas of friends of the opposite gender(s) after designated times.
Curfew: CCP will have clearly defined curfews.
Smoking: Smoking is prohibited at Newport Street Retreat.
