The Greater Rochester Teen Book Festival considers the safety of all those connected with the Festival to be of the utmost importance.  The Board of Directors voted to adopt a set of policies designed to maintain the high standards placed on issues of safety, communication, and the protection of minors.  As our Annual Teen Book Fest Event takes place on Nazareth College campus, we worked with Nazareth College faculty and administrators to ensure that TBF's policies are in line with Nazareth College's policies for safe conduct on their campus.  Details of the policies are provided here: 

Greater Rochester Teen Book Festival Teen First Policy. This policy outlines the expectation that teens will have priority seating in all sessions.
Greater Rochester Teen Book Festival Social Media Policy.   This policy outlines expectations and responsibilities regarding content and images shared using any TBF social media outlets.
Greater Rochester Teen Book Festival Conduct-Centered Policies.  This set of policies outlines the organization's expectations of non-discrimination, anti-harassment, and the protection of minors.
