With demanding schedules and daily challenges, it can be difficult to find the time to get involved. With a wide variety of options, it’s just a matter of determining which opportunity works best for you and your family. See the link at the bottom for the Virtus Online link to register for compliance.

Child Protection Policy for Volunteers

In order to volunteer on a regular basis, we follow the guidelines of the Diocesan Child Protection Policy. Volunteer requirements:

Authorization & Verification/Acknowledgement

All employees and volunteers must receive a copy of the Child Protection Policy and sign the Authorization and Verification Form and Acknowledgement page. The signed forms are to be kept on file at the location of service; the date signed is to be noted on the Compliance Checklist and sent to the Chancery.

Fingerprinting and In-Service

Employees and volunteers who work with children, regardless of their level of contact with children, must be fingerprinted and participate in our “Protecting God's Children for Adults” in-service program. Click on the link below to be taken to the Virtus Online Course Schedule, select "Youngstown (Diocese)" from the drop-down, and click the Select button. This will take you to the schedule page where you can start registration for one of the sessions.
