If any youth fails to behave or abide by these rules, they will be asked to leave for the remainder of the youth meeting. If a youth consistently fails to listen to staff and does not abide by these rules, they will be asked to leave for the remainder of the youth meeting, and will not be able to attend following meeting the Youth Centre is open. This is Strike 1. If this behavior continues, the youth participant will then be suspended for one week from the Jago Community Youth Centre. This is Strike 2. Finally, after a youth has had a one week suspension from the Jago Youth Centre and still continues to not listen to staff, misbehave or not abide by the rules, the youth will then be suspended indefinitely, or until he/she, along with a parent or guardian, meets with the Youth Coordinator and Executive Director.
