Safeguarding God’s Children

Child Abuse Prevention Training for Paid Full-time Staff and
All Who Work With Children & Youth

Safeguarding God’s Children provides participants with the information they need to protect the children they know and care for in their personal lives and the ministries in which they serve. The program is based on the philosophy that if every adult can protect just one child, the will forever change one life. If we can all change one life, together we will make a difference in this generation of children.

In the Diocese of Washington, we want each of our parishes to actively protect their children and youth so that we may live into our baptismal covenant and to help them grow stronger in their life in Christ.

Who needs to attend?

  • All paid parish staff members who have not completed a child abuse and sexual misconduct prevention of program. Recertification may be completed online. Speak with your parish leader about this option.
  • Any volunteers working with children and youth (including Christian education leaders) who have not completed a child abuse and sexual misconduct prevention of program in the last three years
  • Anyone who wishes to learn more about how their parish can protect children and youth.
