“SAFE ENVIRONMENT” SESSION-
“PROTECTING GOD’S CHILDREN”
The “Protecting God’s Children” program provides an opportunity for all adults in a community to participate in a comprehensive sexual abuse awareness session—a commitment of approximately 3 hours. In that amount of time, an adult can learn about the types of harm associated with sexual abuse, can learn how to recognize the characteristics of a possible abuser, can become familiar with the warning signs of abuse, and can learn the proper way to report suspicious behavior. Three hours spent participating in an awareness session is a small time commitment for any adult—especially when the result is a lifetime of empowerment to help protect children.
ALL ADULTS WHO HAVE ANY CONTACT WITH OUR CHILDREN (CATECHISTS, CYO, TEACHERS, AIDES, VOLUNTEERS, ETC…) MUST PARTICIPATE IN THIS PROGRAM.
St. John Bosco periodically provides sessions in English and in Spanish for our parishioners. Look for more information in the parish bulletin.
