We went through VIRTUS training. VIRTUS is the brand name that identifies best practices programs designed to help prevent wrongdoing and promote "rightdoing" within religious organizations. The VIRTUS programs empower organizations and people to better control risk and improve the lives of all those who interact with the Church. This training allows us to identify the risks to children early enough to prevent child sexual abuse from occurring. By successfully completing this training we were given a certification through the Diocese of Syracuse Child & Youth Protection Program. After our training we were given a tour of the school and what rooms we would be in to help out.
