Safe Environment for Our Children
Our diocese requires that we register all parish volunteers to minors so that we can serve those in our care responsibly and effectively. This means that all coaches and their assistants must undergo the following procedures . Failure to do so will result in immediate suspension of all coaching privileges.
Registration involves the following:
1. Volunteer Registration Form completion
2. Background Check Permission Form completion
3. Signing Code of Conduct
4. Attending a Virtus workshop
All individuals who volunteer to work with minors will receive a package containing an online registration form with access to www.virtus.org
to sign up on that Website for the required workshop nearest to the individual(s). At the workshop the volunteer(s) will sign in, and hand in the background search form, and the Code of Conduct form that will be sent to the Safe Enviroment Office along with the official sign in sheet which serves as proof of attendance. Upon completion of the workshop and necessary forms, you will be officially registered with the Diocese of Brooklyn as a registered volunteer.
