  2. From your dashboard, click Apps > Additional Google Services.
  3. In the list of services, click YouTube.
  4. On the YouTube settings page, click Content settings.
  5. (Optional) Next to Special approvers, check Verified Google Classroom teachers can approve videos
  6. To allow approvers by organizational unit, click Permissions.
  7. On the left, select each organizational unit with people you want to approve videos.
  8. Next to Permissions at this level, click Can approve videos.

Note: Once a group is given Approver permissions, they can approve videos and channels.
