Rules of Presentation and Conduct

On the other hand, participants enrolled in the Projetos JA, logistics and/or kitchen, can present themselves, if possible, with a JA garment, to present an image of strength and uniformity.

In addition, there are other rules that are mandatory in the activities of JA and include: the absence of pendants (piercings, etc.), reamers or other objects of extravagant adornment; decency in the clothes used; prohibition of entry of any alcoholic beverage, caffeine, tobacco or illicit substance.

Relationships in being and opinion must express all Christian ethics dignity and respect for the values of JA.
