STEPS PRIOR TO SERVING IN MINISTRY OR OTHER VOLUNTEER SERVICE
The Empowering God’s Children Program is for children and youth, Kindergarten through grade 12, to teach them about boundaries, how to recognize boundary violations, how to respond to persons who violate their boundaries, and how to report such violations to parents, family members and other trusted adults. The sessions are taught in the Catholic Schools and in parish religious education. Empowering God’s Children is a prerequisite to applying for Teen Leader Training.
