Respect PropertyParticipants care for the property in the Center, the Ginew/Golden Eagle vehicles and other designated areas/sites as if the property were our own. We are held accountable for any misuse or misbehavior regarding property.
Practice SafetyParticipants practice safety such as wearing our seat belts while in the Ginew/Golden Eagle vehicles. We follow all safety guidelines set by the Ginew/Golden Eagle Program staff.
Leave Personal Items at HomeParticipants do not bring unnecessary personal belongings, especially since the Ginew/Golden Eagle Program staff cannot guarantee the security of such belongings. We do not bring outside food because food is provided by the program. If we are aged 10 and under, we do not have our cell phones out while in group. If we are aged 11 and above, we may use our cell phones during specified free times.
Positively Represent the Ginew/Golden Eagle ProgramParticipants remember that our attitudes and behaviors reflect and represent the Ginew/Golden Eagle Program, which is why we strive to maintain a positive attitude and show appropriate behavior. In addition, we remember that our attitudes and behaviors also reflect and represent the Minneapolis American Indian Center and the American Indian community.

Daily Phone CallOn the day of a scheduled activity, the Ginew/Golden Eagle Program staff will contact the participant's parent/guardian to confirm his/her/their attendance and transportation need. (In the case that a parent/guardian does not receive a call from the Ginew/Golden Eagle Program staff, please call the program office at 612-879-1708 or the program cell phone at 612-308-6314 to confirm attendance and transportation for the participant.) If a participant's scheduled attendance and/or transportation need changes, a parent/guardian must notify staff at least one hour before the scheduled pickup time. If the staff does not receive confirmation for transportation, the participant will not be on the afternoon pickup list. In this case, a parent/guardian is still welcome to drop off the participant and check him/her/them in with staff; furthermore, the participant may be added to our night drop off list.
Parent/Guardian Afternoon Drop Off The Ginew/Golden Eagle Program staff is not able to supervise participants in the Center prior to 5:00 p.m. If a parent/guardian intends to drop off the participant before this time, please stay with him/her/them until staff arrives. If a parent/guardian will be late to drop off the participant, please call the program cell phone at 612-308-6314.
Parent/Guardian Night PickupA parent/guardian must pickup the participant ten minutes prior to when the Ginew/Golden Eagle Program drivers leave for night drop offs. Any participant who is not picked by a parent/guardian at this time will need to go with the Ginew/Golden Eagle Program drivers along the night drop off route; in this event, the drivers will attempt to contact the parent/guardian before leaving the Center. Additionally, a parent/guardian must be at home when the participant is scheduled to be dropped off from program activities. If a parent/guardian is not at home at the scheduled time, the participant will be suspended from the Ginew/Golden Eagle Program until a parent/guardian contacts staff for a conference. If the participant resumes his/her/their participation after said conference but the parent/guardian still fails to be at home at the scheduled time, the participant will be suspended from the program indefinitely.
Night Drop Off: When a Parent/Guardian Is Not at HomeThe Ginew/Golden Eagle Program driver will leave a note on the parent/guardian's door to explain the present situation, and the participant will stay in our vehicle until the end of the drop off route. If the driver is not able to reach the parent/guardian at this time, the driver will contact both emergency contacts and the participant will be dropped off at one of their homes. If the driver is not able to reach the parent/guardian OR either of the emergency contacts, the participant will be taken to St. Joseph's Home for Children at 1120 E. 47th St. in Minneapolis.
