PROVIDING A SAFE PLACE

SAFE ENVIRONMENT TRAINING

MANDATORY TRAINING FOR ALL VOLUNTEERS IN THE DIOCESE OF PHOENIX

The Diocese of Phoenix is committed to protecting all children and youth by offering several abuse-prevention educational sessions.

We can all be part of the solution.  Together we can prevent child abuse.  All priests, deacons and employees, are required to take Safe Environment Training annually. In addition, all volunteers serving minors, working in food pantries or meal service, providing ministerial service in private homes and/or administering service in an after school program must be trained annually. All other volunteers must complete Safe Environment Training every other year (unless the pastor requires annual training for all volunteers).

In the Diocese of Phoenix,  all volunteers must complete a safe environment training foundation class. The current foundation training program is “Protecting God’s Children for Adults.” This is a three-hour program which teaches steps that each one of us can take to prevent child sexual abuse. As a component of the training, all volunteers are required to complete a Volunteer Application and Code of Ethics.

After taking the Safe Environment foundation course, a renewal training (approximately 45 minutes) is offered for all subsequent years. This training is offered through in-class sessions or through computer online training.

Please visit www.safeenvironmenttraining.org to learn more about the Diocese of Phoenix Safe Environment Training, to register for a training class, or to complete the online training.
