If you are an adult interested in volunteering in programs with children and teens here at St. Stephen’s school or parish, please remember that all volunteers are required to complete the Essential 3: a background check, attend a VIRTUS awareness session and sign a Code of Conduct.
Among other things, VIRTUS attendees will learn to recognize the signs and symptoms that indicate a child is being abused or exploited in some way, environmental factors to be aware of in the physical space of the parish or school, how abusers operate, and things adults can do to help educate children about how to respond to inappropriate behavior toward them.
To register, please visit www.virtus.org . It is very important that you pre-register to make sure your attendance is counted.
